Community Events, February 2016
Black Diamond’s new council members are doing all the right things, but their opponents from the election are wasting time and taxpayer money trying to disrupt them. With sour grapes after their endorsed candidates lost last fall, in a landslide election, some are trying to keep doing business the old way.

Council changes disregard attorney and insurance carrier’s concerns and advise | Letter to the Editor
In 2012 the voters of Black Diamond voted to maintain the form of government it now has, the mayor-council form of government.

I attended the city of Black Diamond council meeting on Thursday, Jan. 7. I must say I was quite shocked at what transpired during that meeting.
