Anyone who has attended a city council meeting anywhere in the Flathead knows they can often be rather, er, staid environments – which is as it should be. But I bet a lot of folks, me included, secretly begin to hope – as a meeting enters its third or fourth hour – something wild happens, like the video below. The mayor here, incidentally, was re-elected.
