Budget issues Dear Editor, Guided by the city’s auditor, the new Clarkston treasurer wisely recommended city council amend the 2015-16 budget by almost $60,000, to reflect expenditures already incurred. The council approved the budget amendment with three days remaining in the fiscal year ending June 30. Starting with the positives, it could’ve been more; wasn’t […]

SPIRITUAL MATTERS: Make choice for better payday

In recent times, there has been a revolutionary change in attitude towards morality. Modern thinking is based upon the premise of evolution.

Message for reader in FOIA responses Dear Editor, If the city manager has to “issue a 10 day FOIA extension” so she can “calculate the charge” for a simple FOIA request, then you would think the Clarkston City Council would be questioning her ability to do the job for which she was hired to do, […]
