City Council Member-elect Don Zimmerman will serve as a voice for residents of District 6 when the new 10-1 Council takes office today. In the coming year, Zimmerman said he plans to focus his efforts on relieving traffic congestion and shaking up the status quo at City Hall.
Zimmerman said that in his first days on Council, he hopes to garner cooperation from his fellow Council members to conduct an audit of all city departments to find areas to cut spending.
“We’ve got to find out where the money’s going,” he said. “Staff needs to be cut down.”
