As Steering & Rules Committee chair Ashanti Hamllton opened Wednesday's Steering & Rules Committee special meeting, he described the moment as pivotal to our city. He called for thoughtfulness and urgency.
“The more we learn about the consequences of lead exposure, the clearer it is that the highest degree of care and caution must be given, especially to our most vulnerable communities,” Hamilton said.
Members of the public and media in the room expected to be ushered out of the room. The word around town was the committee would move to a closed session.
