'We want The

Clarkston News'

Clarkston City Council members have spoken, again. At a June 23 meeting, council members said The Clarkston News is to be used as the first choice for publishing legal notices.

Councilwoman Peg Roth requested the discussion be scheduled at the June 23 city council meeting because she has noticed public notices are frequently printed in a daily newspaper when they could have been printed in The Clarkston News.

This is the third discussion this year about where the city's public notices should be printed. City Manager Carol Eberhardt has been directed several times by council to use the News as a first choice for publishing notices.

The Clarkston News, which was founded in 1929, has historically printed the city's public notices.
