UPDATE, 2pm: The News Tribune has a story about Ruston changing from a town to a city tonight. You can read the article here...
Here is the link to my previous research and thoughts on the issue.
If you love local politics, join us for the Ruston council meeting tonight. Things are fairly quiet these days, but it's still a great way to experience small town America. Ruston will officially become a code city tonight, leaving the classification of a 4th class town to the history books after 100+ years.
The rest of the agenda looks pretty light. The background materials are available here if you want more details. The meeting starts at 7pm at the Joyce Community Center - 5219 N. Shirley Street.
