City Council is expected to vote on whether to approve a budget adjustment to fulfill the Roswell Police Department’s request for its own attorney, during its monthly meeting at 7 p.m., Thursday, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 425 N. Richardson Ave.
Since the department proposed the position in August last year, the matter of how to meet the request has been subjected to much debate among the council and the resolution has been tabled several times.
Council is expected to vote, following a recommendation regarding the position from the Finance Committee.
During the meeting, there will also be two public hearings, one for a proposed ordinance that would allow dog owners to not have their pets on leashes while at the dog park and another for a proposed ordinance that would amend the city code regarding the replacement of sidewalks.
The full agenda for the meeting is available online at roswell-nm.gov or by calling 624-6700.
