Opponents says an association with Burning Man is the wrong brand for the city. The Nevada City Council takes up the matter tonight and meets at 6:30 p.m. A spokeswoman for Burning Man says the companion city status is welcomed.

It seems NC is desperate for popularity/attention and will lose the charm & class it has established if remaining on this course. Unless it's for survival then that should be clear to citizens of NC and GV. Burning Man attracts a lot of bizzarre...not against it to some degree but there are extremes I'd think NC would not welcome.
