But the April 1 council meeting included an unexpected guest, one whose visit prompted a unanimous vote to proclaim every April 1 as Bigfoot Day in Senoia.
For generations, Bigfoot has been the subject of folklore. But all that changed Monday night when the mythical creature entered the council chambers in the flesh and calmly took a seat among the city’s residents.
Mayor Robert Belisle immediately noticed the unusual guest and did not miss a stride in asking the sasquatch if he, or perhaps she since its gender was not exactly obvious, would like to address the council. Bigfoot quickly left his seat and moved to the podium where he made a number of guttural volcalizations that were, quite simply, difficult to understand.
Unphased by the rare sighting, Belisle thanked the creature for his comments and attendance. Bigfoot again uttered a series of completely undistinguishable remarks, made a few non-threatening motions to the council, then turned and left the council chambers.
And though his appearance was brief, the bona fide sighting of the bipedal beast led Belisle to make a motion that every April 1 be proclaimed as Bigfoot Day in Senoia. The motion and second were followed immediately by a unanimous vote.
