December 8, 1977, Monitor, Monroe, WA., Page Five News From Mlelde Henry 677-2202 The regular meeting of the City Council was called to order by Mayor Timpe with Councilmen Gale, Boffey, Stevens and Henry present. A letter of resignation was read by the clerk from Councilman McCausland, who is moving to Sultan.

The dog, it's a boy dog we noticed, is a brown one and brown ones are the nosiest kind, you know. Anyway, the Brown Dog's stomach kept growling.

You can see there's little to laugh about in some of the council stuff.
