City Council Wish List
Most city governments hold regularly scheduled public meetings and offer citizens opportunities to voice their opinions, offer suggestions or declare complaints. This is an opportune time to address this issue. The chances are that most of the city council members have already heard of the case and are somewhat sympathetic to your cause. When it is your turn to speak have a flyer for the missing child and copies of the City Council Wish List available for each member of the governing body, attending media representatives and interested members of the public.
