City Council resolutions tends to be more statement than force of policy, but the city’s legislative body Monday night will refer a couple of matters of note to respective committees, including reallocation of police funds to social service needs and questioning taxpayer-funded payments to lawyers representing city employees during a federal probe of the police chief selection process.
The council also wants early inclusion into collective bargaining agreements because they ultimately must approve the labor contracts.
This meeting will be conducted by teleconference. The public may listen by calling the following conference line and then entering the conference code:
