Warren Reports

Text by Warren Gubler, Vice Mayor

Citizen Participation

The Visalia City Council makes a lot of routine decisions on behalf of our community. On occasion, however, an individual or neighborhood in the city gets involved. We try to balance their input with staff reports and our own research. Similar to a judge in court, we try to render our final decision based upon the facts and merits, not upon which side has the most in attendance at a council meeting.
