FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Springfield City Council will 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. 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. # # # For more information, contact: Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement, 417-864-1009 (office) | 417-380-3352 (cell), firstname.lastname@example.org.
