Happy Anniversary! A One Year Review of Municipal Minute

It's been a year since we started Municipal Minute with the intention of providing updates on cases, laws, and other legal issues facing local governments.  In the past year, we have reported on land use cases from around the country, opinions in the area of FOIA and Open Meetings Act, legal and ethical issues with government social media use, and other matters important to local government officials, employees, and attorneys. 

In celebration of our anniversary, we revisit some of the blog's more popular posts, "Twitter-style":
