  • 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

In my 40 years of construction, in many different municipalities, my experience in Hopkins has been the best.
