According to the Mayor, the Olympics always has more non winners than winners and the Mayor hopes to work that to the advantage of our fair city. In his vision, Bridge Park would host what would be billed as the 2012 Olympics II, where all the non medal winners would compete in their chosen fields to win prizes and gifts donated by area merchants. The "games" would be held at the City Athletic Field with an opening and closing ceremony akin to what is taking place in London at present. In addition, he suggested building a huge bonfire out by the lake, to mimic the Olympic torch.
Due to City Hall being closed for floor waxing this weekend, the special council meeting was called to order just after 9 P.M. last evening, in the party room at Maxine's Pub on 4th St. All council members were present and each enjoyed a beverage as Mayor Dover explained his vision.
