Muscatine Mayor Brad Bark will swear in Nathanial Avis and Tylor Staley to service with the Muscatine Police Department, and then sign a proclamation designating May 14-20 as National Police Week in Muscatine. The Robotics Team will then be recognized and provide a demonstration to the City Council.
