Four Cub Scouts chosen for their questions learned about city government from a special teacher on Wednesday.
Blackfoot Mayor Paul Loomis answered the boys' questions during a meeting in the city council chambers, then shared a lunch with them, some parents and siblings. The Blackfoot Elks Lodge sponsored the lunch.
Loomis began with an explanation of the workings of city government. He asked the boys about the recent issue of "should we allow dogs in the city cemetery?"
After his presentation, the boys voted 3-1 to forbid dogs there, much as the city council had done.
