  • Comment from former City Council member: " Just thought I'd pass this along.  I'm having some work done on my bathroom and my plumber (who I found on the internet) just made the comment that Hopkins is a great City to work with, much better than a lot of others he works with.  He didn't know of my close involvement so it was just an unsolicited comment.  He is particularly appreciative of the comment cards." 2008
