Augusta, GA -
Mayor Deke Copenhaver is seeing his days in office dwindle, but that doesn't mean he's kicking back and taking it easy. The mayor still has plenty of goals before his term is finished. There is also plenty of work ahead of him.
This month, as Mayor Copenhaver makes his visit to the set of "The Means Report", there is no shortage of topics on hand. Two major businesses have had grand openings, and the City of Augusta has been given a new honor. The mayor discusses those impacts on the city. He also offers up that change is a big factor in the growth of the city -- something the commission will need to look at with the possible installation of parking meters and a debate over smoking bans. Mayor Copenhaver points out that change and growth are two topics the candidates for the new mayor need to be prepared for as they campaign for votes.
