The contents of the Bicentennial Time Capsule were presented at a city council meeting Nov. 12 where the sale of recreational marijuana within city limits was officially banned, creating a juxtaposition of excitement for the future and fear of being stuck in the past among councilmen and citizens alike.

“One of our final tasks for the sesquicentennial was putting together a time capsule that represents our community today,” said Mayor Nancy Rotering. “This capsule shows that we’re passionate on planning for the future.”
