Attending a city council meeting is something that every citizen should do…at least once. It derives a perspective and appreciation of the many facets of and the numerous individual inputs required to fairly and equitably implement policies of the city. It’s also something that is free to anyone who wishes to avail themselves to such a privilege.
On the other hand, learning the ingenious complexities of our community’s composting and recycling facilities is a treat that is likely available only to Leadership Napa Valley classes. What a unique opportunity it is to witness first hand, via a hosted tour that explains the inner workings of the massive and intricately designed process. How else would one learn how Napa is being such a stellar steward of community resources? It was a genuine treat! It’s even more impressive when learning that the complex operation is actually earning the county funds, not ‘costing’ money. Exceptional ‘kudos’ to our leaders!
