Short Story Month - Our Fair City by Robert A. Heinlein
I've always associated Robert Heinlein with science fiction but I was pleasantly surprised by this frothy bit of fantasy. Mr. Heinlein takes on the corrupt cops and politicians of a small city with, of all things, a whirlwind called Kitten. A fun story. You can read "Our Fair City" here in pdf. This story was published in Weird Tales January of 1949. I read it in an anthology titled "The Fantasy Hall of Fame" edited by Robert Silverberg.
