All Torn Up About Lead and Coal

Business owners are shocked by the roadwork, but the city says they should have seen it coming

That’s the prevailing response from business owners on Lead who, for the next 18-months, will watch 35 blocks in their neighborhood undergo extensive construction.

Cars for Coppers

Police union president Joey Sigala had a last-minute Christmas wish for the City Council at its Monday, Dec. 20 meeting.
