With a nod to the holiday season, the Dec. 9 meeting of the Muscatine City Council had a festive atmosphere with Council members and staff wearing "ugly" sweaters for the night. [@CityofMuscatine]

The Muscatine community is invited to a reception from 6-6:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16 honoring three elected officials who will be leaving office at the end of the 2021 calendar year.

Diana Broderson has served as the Mayor of Muscatine for the past six years while councilmembers Kelcey Brackett and Osmond Malcolm have served for the past four years.

Malcolm decided not to seek reelection this year while Broderson and Brackett were defeated in the November General Election.

Everyone is invited to attend the reception and thank these individuals for their service to the city prior to their final City Council meeting.
