Dear EfficientGov Subscriber,
Biking is clearly on the list of what a citizen wants in community development. Don't miss learning about why locals love their 'coolest' small cities -- as rated by travelers -- in this week's look at our photo contest winner Ellensburg, Washington, and runner-up, Bentonville, Arkansas. These two small cities offer different ways to incorporate cycling into the fabric of their cities.

We also have updates on transportation funding and advice on how to protect rural cops -- they are more likely to be ambushed by extremists, experts say.
Editor, Andrea Fox
