Westlake name will become a thing of the past

Mayor Pam Hoots said the City Council voted to enter into the lengthy process to officially change the name of Westlake Drive to something new at a future date.

Thankfully, the hospital tax will be ending in a couple of years and it may be good to put the street name to bed along with it.
