To the public: why am I the only one showing up to Maquoketa city council meetings? There are 5 wards here in Maquoketa how will our council members know your thoughts and opinions if you don’t show up? Citizens of Maquoketa you have no right to complain if you don’t show up. There is always time during the city council meetings to express your concerns and opinions plus before you listen to a radio station, watch local access channel 18 or 19 if you have Mediacom, or read it in the paper. Dont always believe what you hear form another person. When coming to various city council meetings please be respectful to your council member and by the way pray for all of your councilmen and woman and remember Romans 13:1-7 NLT
