Marietta Mayor Scott Birdsall has a vision of turning his town into something great. He says it all starts with the people and their ideas.
At Tuesday night's meeting residents talked about a variety of topics ranging from street repairs to crime. Many of the citizens voiced thier concerns about the condition of the streets they drive everyday.
They also talked about water. City officials want to attract new residents but say they need more water, and that's costly. Birdsall said during the meeting it will cost about a million dollars just to drill a well for future needs.
The mayor said the city's budget is tight, and he urged citizens to get in contact with lawmakers to help fund some of the city's needs.
About 150 people turned out for Tuesday night's meeting, and Mayor Birdsall believes with the citizens showing they care, the city can grow.
