They’re listening

Reno city government Monday held a sort of open-ended hearing to listen the community, the kind of listening many people accuse government of not doing.

City councilmembers, the mayor, and other city officials shuttled in and out, answering questions and getting feedback. Citizens could bring up whatever topic they wished. It was called a “priority setting session.” The City Council hall was standing room only for the event. One person, a critic of the police chief, was kicked out. She was shown the door by a police officer at the mayor’s order.
