Council scraps this week’s work session

Monday, October 18, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

It looks like this week’s work session will be canceled. During a discussion at last week’s City Council meeting, Mayor Steve Adler explained that, with a cohort of Council members scheduled to be in Nashville with the Chamber of Commerce’s 2021 InterCity Visit, it made sense to cancel the Tuesday meeting. No Council member opposed the move. Council will hear an assessment of the Austin Police Department pilot training academy from Kroll and Associates and a briefing on homelessness at their regular meeting on Thursday, instead of Tuesday, when the presentations were originally scheduled. “I’ll be here, but I agree that work session works best when there are plenty of us,” Council Member Greg Casar said.
