Dan Hagedorn penned this poem about being an Alderman.

Twice on Tuesdays – by Dan Hagedorn

Two times each month, six aldermen meet,
To consider new codes and the balance sheet.

Whether coming from citizen or committee,
Ideas are proposed for the good of the city.

The department heads give their good advice,
on ordinances to be read and voted on twice.

As the Mayor calls the council to a vote,
The newspaper searches for a quote.

After considering all the city’s concerns,
Bills are paid and the council adjourns.
