Local Control


State vs County vs City

Which Government Should Control Which Issue?


This time we are doing something a little different, asking each of these Janesville City Council members to address the question of which issues should be addressed at the city and county level as opposed to the state? When is control at the state instead the local level a problem?

This mural is located in Beloit, near 500 Pleasent St., on the side of the old Ironworks building facing the Rock River.
It is a great tribute to the laborers of the 20th century.
