Council Meets Monday Night

The Indianapolis-Marion County City-County Council will meet this Monday night, December 20. A couple of items on their agenda have proven contentious.

Clearly, the re-appointment of Frank Straub as Director of Public Safety (Prop 366) is far and away the most contentious. The Public Safety Committee voted 5-2 in favor of his reappointment.

Prop 374, would reappoint Jennifer Ping to the Alcoholic Beverage Board. That proposal passed out of the Rules committee with a 4-3 vote in favor.

An offer of incentives for City employees to retire early, Prop 296, passed out of the Admin & Finance committee with a 5-2 vote in favor.

And lastly, a proposal to split the Council's Public Safety and Criminal Justice committee into two separate committees (Prop 376) passed out of the Rule's committee with a 4-3 vote in favor.
