City Market Downtown Needs Community Representation

City Market Downtown Needs Community Representation

This is a long post, so here’s the summary: The City Market Downtown has called a Special Meeting to change the organization’s bylaws so that vendors have complete control over the affairs of the market, whereas previously a healthy mix of vendor and community representation has been required.
