From the In Box:
It was ten years ago in June that the city council old timers Bond, Stocks, and Houlihan closed and locked the doors to city hall. The old doors were replaced with glass - a fitting reminder to taxpayers that from then on you could look in but weren't allowed inside without a special invitation. It was a great metaphor. It was transparent but it was faux. The public could see only what the council wanted the public to see and staff could step behind the corner when they didn't want their activities to be known.
Tin is the traditional gift for the tenth anniversary.
