What about full-timers?

During the holidays, the mayor, Ketchum City Council members and a staff person had a meeting with people who have second homes in the area. They distributed a questionnaire to get their advice on how to make improvements to the city. There was a question-and-answer period in which the mayor or the staff person answered questions presented by the audience.

At the City Council meeting on Jan. 5, I asked Mayor Hall if he and any elected officials would be so kind as to have a Town Hall meeting with the citizens of Ketchum. The mayor declined the request.

I do not know why the input of Ketchum citizens is not as important as that of second-home owners. In fact, I think the people who live here full-time are more important to helping solve the problems that are so prevalent, especially within the business community.
