Citizens assess Obama's presidency

Citizens gathered at the Columbia Armory on Wednesday night to voice their thoughts about President Barack Obama’s first year in office. Hear what some of them have to say.

Thoughts on the new city building

For Cindy Jolly, solid waste district manager, having an office in the new city hall addition means she is no longer surrounded by boxes in her workplace. For Mary Poepsel, an administrative assistant, having a new cubicle in the addition means having more counter space.

On Monday, Columbia city government employees settled in to new offices and cubicles in the new city hall addition. Most seem pleased by the change, saying that the old building had not adequately met their needs and was also somewhat antiquated.

“It’s just a little more updated and refined,” right of way agent Randy Acton said.

Employees think the new addition will be beneficial to the public as well.

“It’s going to be a one-stop shop. You are going to be able to come to one central location and get everything done that you need to get done with the city government,” said Mike Heimos, stormwater educator for the environmental services department.

Speaking in order: stormwater educator Mike Heimos; solid waste district manager Cindy Jolly; Heimos; Jolly; administrative assistant Mary Poepsel; Heimos.
