The head of administration changed his mind

The presentation by the youths in the municipal council in Notodden in May contained many proposals for improving the town. One was to improve existing playgrounds and to build new ones. The head of the administration had however originally proposed in his economic plan that the municipality would no longer be responsible for maintaining the playgrounds, which would likely lead to many being closed. But after the presentation he changed his mind and wanted to go with the youths' proposal. This was the subject of articles both in Telemarksavisa and Telen on the 4th of July.

Experiences in Lithuania

28. Mars left a group of students (and "grownups") from Notodden.
We were going to Alytus to help them make their town a more attractive place to live.
Most of the time we just had fun, and we had always something to do. We
went out every evening to bowl, go to a pub or dance. We also had an evening
when the Lithuanian students showed us their national costumes and we all danced
to their national music.
