Sikeston takes close look at government
The Sikeston Charter Commission is to be congratulated on months of hard work writing Sikeston's potential future.
The commission members met faithfully and agonized over every detail. They invited, and even pleaded, for public input.
The members of the commission have scripted every detail of the city's potential government, including a change to a city council elected partially by ward. It is now up to voters to pass or reject their work on April 2.
Whether the issue passes or fails in the spring, this has been an excellent exercise for the city. How much more familiar with their government people must be now that they have followed the work of a group of men charged with changing it.
