[[File:city_council.png|thumb|300px|The Hill Valley City Council in [[1971B]].]] The '''Hill Valley City Council''' was the governing body of [[Hill Valley]], [[California]]. It had the power to over-ride other city authorities, such as the zoning commission, by way of a unanimous vote among the city council members. In [], in the [[1985A|alternate timeline]] where an elderly [[Biff Tannen]] traveled from [] to [] with a ''[[Grays Sports Almanac]]'' to make himself rich, [[Goldie Wilson]], [[Stanford S. Strickland]], [[Jenkins]], and two other individuals sat on the council. Biff had the plans for [[Tannen manor|a mansion]] drafted that year, but the zoning commission deemed that it was too large. Biff barged into the city council meeting, and demanded a vote to get his plans approved. However, Mr. Strickland objected, and the vote had to be unanimous. Biff tried to bribe Strickland by telling him that he would build a new gym for [[Hill Valley High School]] and call it the "[[Gertrude Tannen]] Memorial Gym". However Strickland told him that he could not be bought, which led Biff to go to more drastic measures. He sent a box of cigars to Strickland at his office at the high school, with a note that made it seem they were a gift from someone who was happy that he stood up to Tannen. When Strickland lit one, it turned out to be a novelty exploding cigar, which exploded and set light to a pile of papers on his desk. When Mr. Strickland tried to put the fire out with the [[fire extinguisher]], the fire grew out of control as [[Biff's gang]] had replaced the extinguisher fluid with an accelerant. Biff sent a [[photograph]] of Strickland lighting the cigar in his office, which led to an investigation. Strickland was forced to step down as principal and as a member of the city council while the investigation was in process. With Strickland out of the way, Biff's mansion plans were approved. [[George McFly]] was given a tip by an informant that stated Biff bought off a member of the city council. However, this informant turned out to be Biff himself, who lured George into an alley in [] and shot him. He then had a member of the [[Hill Valley Police Department]], which he controlled, cover it up by pinning George's murder on [[Red the Bum]], by planting George's wallet on him. With George gone, Biff was able to convince [[Lorraine Baines McFly]] to marry him, in order to help her family, who were all in financial trouble because of Biff's dealings through [[BiffCo]]. ==Appearances== *''[[Back to the Future (IDW Publishing)|''Back to the Future'' (IDW Publishing)]]'' **''[[Back to the Future: Biff to the Future]]'' ***''[[Back to the Future: Biff to the Future 3|Issue #3: "Biff to the Future Part 3"]]'' [[Category:Locations_outside_Hill Valley]] [[Category:1955]] Return to Hill Valley City Council.
