Public Safety Council Committee scheduled

Wednesday, March 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The first Public Safety Council Committee meeting will take place at 4 p.m. March 23. City Council Member Don Zimmerman, who chairs the committee, sent out a release Tuesday about its first agenda. According to the release, the committee will tackle three issues: the need for a new Municipal Court clerk; towing dispatching, impounding and fees; and the city’s Code Department. The last item, the release says, will feature “Briefings, public testimony, and policy discussion on Austin Code, with case history from Austin Code and constituents,” and is expected to take an hour. Given that Zimmerman has already tipped his hand about his feelings toward Code, we look forward to what promises to be a lively discussion.
