SARTELL -- The City of Sartell is bringing a new style of public debate to the area. Starting tomorrow (Wednesday) Sartell City Hall will host "Sartell Says."

Based on National Public Radio's "Intelligence Squared," "Sartell Says" will explore and debate issues that affect the daily lives of Sartell citizens.

A panelist of four experts will compare and contrast the opposing viewpoints with an opportunity for audience members to ask questions to the panelists.

The first topic is "Chickens in the Backyard; Should they be allowed to roost in residential neighborhoods?"

The debate will take place at Sartell City Hall starting at 7:00 p.m. They plan to have four to five debates throughout the year.

It is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
