Appointments – Our view: Step up, be consistent

It’s a practice city councils complete annually. And in Glencoe’s case, it left us wondering.
Mayor Ryan Voss appoints, with council approval, council members to serve on the city’s various boards. Why are four members of the city council on commissions – councilors Sue Olson, Paul Lemke, John Schrupp and Cory Neid – while Councilor Allen Robeck opted to remain on the sidelines?

A worthy update

Not that it had much choice, but the city is updating its tobacco ordinance to comply with state law.
State statute or city ordinance, we applaud legislation aimed at keeping tobacco out of the hands of 18-year-olds. Because there are 19- and 20-year-olds who had the legal right to purchase, possess and use tobacco products, we also agree with the change making possession of tobacco for those people a civil penalty rather than a criminal matter.
