When the Board of Aldermen returns Friday after a two-month summer break, a proposal to repeal the residency rule for police and other merit system employees will be among the issues in play.
On a narrow 15-12 vote on July 3, aldermen endorsed a measure to let voters decide on repeal through a proposed city charter amendment at the November 2020 election.
Sponsor Carol Howard, D-14th Ward, held off a final board vote the following week because two members who voted yes moved to the undecided column.
Howard said last week that she plans to try again as soon as the board’s next meeting on Friday.
“I’m going to bring it forward and let the chips fall where they may,” Howard said.
