In fact, we see it more as a proactive approach than a reactive one.
Months ago, it launched a movement led by Councilman James McGowan to clean up and beautify the city. But more important, it is concentrating on sustaining that effort by keeping it clean.
The latest move to benefit citizens is the adoption of a discount prescription drug plan, led again by McGowan. This plan allows citizens to have a National League of Cities Prescription Discount Card that can be used when insurance doesn’t cover the cost.
The plan saves an average of 20 percent on drug bills.
We commend McGowan and the administration for looking for ways to improve the city and its services, and we thank them for moving solidly ahead with both of these programs.
