Daily Buzz | Should Burlington's Town Government Be Restructured?
Also, Stress and Coping Strategies parent breakfast this morning
I mentioned yesterday I was going to go more in-depth in the structure and history of Burlington’s government, and it made sense to go back to my roots and create a story for the Local Government section. I’m going to keep the rest of the Buzz short, because I really think it’s an interesting and essential read. So, please! Click below and read. And then come back and see what’s going on in town today.
