PASCO, WA - Pasco city leaders want to know what you like and don't like about the city.

On Tuesday, the city held the first of two community forums. And to no surprise, the hot topic was Road 68. Community members believe the road is congested and the turn lanes need to be re-designed to improve traffic flow.
 
Other topics that came up were stray dogs, concerns about the brightness of the new power saving street lights, and the need for more sidewalks along Argent Road.

"I just think it's a great opportunity to come down, let your voice be heard. The fact they're having two of them makes me feel like they value each and every voice that's heard, so I think it's great. I think it's awesome. It needs to keep happening," Kelly Larsen, a forum attendee, told NBC Right Now.

If you missed Tuesday's meeting, you can still catch Wednesday's forum at 7 P.M. at the Pasco Senior Center on North 7th Street.
