E-NP Elementary students Trick-or-Treat last year. The Eldora City Council approved a traditional Beggar's Night Halloween at Tuesday's meeting.

The Eldora City Council approved two separate Halloween related events at Tuesday's meeting.

A Beggar's Night, meaning traditional door-to-door Halloween trick-or-treating, will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 31. The plans were approved with a 3-2 vote. Council members Mel Hoy and Cindy Johns cast the dissenting votes. The council also unanimously approved a trunk-or-treat event to be held the same day, from 4 to 6 p.m. on the streets surrounding the old high school. Prepared candy packages will be available for kids to pick up on tables set up around vehicles to prevent close contact.

I think that Mr. Budweg, as councilperson, should review the Iowa League of Cities' PDF (Sept. 2016) entitled "The Leadership Role for City Councils", that plainly states legislation as a duty of a city council. One would hope at this moment in time that policy/plans set would have the best interest of community wellness in mind. Iowans are sick of the idea that we are basically on our own dealing with the pandemic and the 'good luck with that' attitude. More and more residents of Hardin County are catching the virus and the death rate climbs. The 'personal responsibility' thing is meaningless when so many are irresponsible.
