Council Breathes Easy as Mule Day Comes Off Without a Hitch


The Gordo City Council members were all breathing a sigh of relief at the Council meeting this month, on June 4. Mule Day had once again been organized, put on, cleaned up, and touted a success for another year.

With some of the hottest temperatures of the year so far, and the dew point in the mid-70s, the crowd was hot, but there were no heat issues for the emergency departments. “No major incidents,” reported Gordo Police Chief Todd Hall.
