Overflow crowd again expected for next City Council Meeting

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The Sept. 22 City Council meeting is expected to draw a large crowd that could possibly exceed building capacity. Overflow rooms with be set up, as well as loud speakers set up outside the building. To ensure safety and provide fair access to City Hall, doors will be closed until 5:30 p.m., one hour prior to the meeting start time. Citizens wishing to speak on behalf of a Council bill may call the City Clerk’s office at 864-1443. The sign-up period to speak will continue until the title of the bill is read at the meeting Monday evening. Remarks will be limited to three minutes each, per direction from Mayor Bob Stephens. According to City Code: Chapter 2-42 , remarks must be limited to the bill itself. Mayor Stephens said he will ask anyone straying from the content of the bill to return back to the content. Those not complying may asked to conclude their comments. Just a reminder: City Council is expected to vote on a proposed amendment to the City’s non-discrimination ordinance at its Oct. 13 meeting. Previously, it was mentioned that the vote would take place Oct. 27. That was in error. We regret any inconvenience. Another date change is for an update on the Springfield Police Department’s non-injury crash response policy. Councilwoman Cindy Rushefsky requested that the timeline for an update on the change in the policy be moved up from six months to three months. The policy change was effective Aug. 1, so a three-month update will take place at the City Council meeting Nov. 10. Another update will follow in February. # # # For more information, contact: Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement, 417-864-1009 (office) | 417-380-3352 (cell), cscott@springfieldmo.gov.
