Standing from left to right are the city of Lincoln Ward 3 Alderman Rick Hoefle, Mayor Seth Goodman and Fire Chief Mark Miller. The three men are joined in the council chambers by members of the Carroll Catholic School third grade class. The students came to city hall on Wednesday to meet the mayor, and take a tour of city hall and the Lincoln Fire Department. Goodman solicited the assistance of Miller to give the tour, and Hoefle stopped by to lend a hand as needed. The kids spent time with the mayor asking him questions about city government, the annual budget, and the mayoral duties. They also held their own mock city council meeting with a miniature mayor taking a crucial vote, which was not unanimous. In the end, hamburgers for lunch won by a landslide with mac and cheese getting only a few votes and no one voting for brussel sprouts! LDN will have additional coverage of the tour on Friday.
