Town Government Story

Your assignment is to do an in-depth enterprise story focusing on an ongoing issue faced by a local community in Bucks County or Philadelphia. You'll need to first find an idea for your story. You can do this by scanning the local paper or news website, or by attending a meeting of the local town council. What you're looking for is not a quick-hit story about a small or isolated event but a piece on the kind of big-picture issue that towns wrestle with everywhere, preferably the kind of thing that generates some controversy or conflict. Battles over town budgets are a good example.

Develop a story idea and pitch it to me. If I okay it then get started on your reporting. This story should be 1,000 to 1,500 words.
