This month,  Renato Delos Reyes, Rapidian politics beat member and The Rapidian's Community Engagement Specialist, had a question about flooding. Riverside Park was severely flooded during the April deluge, and Delos Reyes, who lives near Riverside Park, is curious about city plans for flooding damage recovery.

For 18 years, the mayors of Grand Rapids have hosted City Connection, a monthly, live call-in show on GRTV’s Livewire, Comcast channel 24.  Mayor John Logie started the program in 1992 as a way to share mayoral perspective with Grand Rapidians and to bring a little more transparency to local government. City Connection is an opportunity to interact directly with one of our city’s top elected officials.
