Resources on the City Beat

The City of Missoula's Web site has links to:

Who's who on the City Council.
A map of city wards.
Council agendas.

Missoulian reporter Keila Szpaller's local government site,, is a good place to look for background.

Some style issues for your city coverage:
  • Let's identify the council as the Missoula City Council on first reference and the council on subsequent ones.

  • Let's identify council members this way: Councilman Bob Jaffe, Councilwoman Stacy Rye.

  • You don't have to identify council members by ward, unless that's pertinent to the story
