The appointment of former State Rep. Hector Diaz to the Board of Police Commissioners, settlement of pending federal litigation with city police officer Lonnie Blackwell and resolution regarding a grant application authorization for school construction work at the Catholic Center on Jewett Avenue are among the agenda items for Monday night’s City Council meeting. For more on Catholic Center see here.
The Blackwell issue stems from a federal discrimination lawsuit filed more than three years ago in which Blackwell, former head of the Guardians minority police organization, claims he was “subjected to harassment, ridicule and unfavorable employment practices.”
