My first idea doesn't have much to do with what was talked about at the meeting, but with who was speaking. I think that a feature story on each of the council members would be very interesting. This was the first time I had met these people and they all seemed to have such an abundance of knowledge about the California community. What backgrounds did they come from? How did they get to where they are today? These are two of the main questions I would want to answer in a feature story. I believe that the local people would be interested in a piece like this. It would really give the people in our community a sense of knowledge when it comes to knowing the people in charge of making crucial decisions.
A second story idea that I had involved the renovations at the municipal building in town. I think that covering the details of the renovation would be a piece that the readers would be interested in. Also maybe digging into the town's past and finding out when the last time a renovation like this was done. Though this probably wouldn't be a long story, there would be a lot of sources available to talk to, including the council members, and a lot of different angles to cover.
