Since July 2004, the council has received more than 2,000 pages in research on the topic including court decisions, maps, articles and ordinances in other cities. In her time as council attorney, Kathy Cekanski-Farrand said, it’s the heaviest volume of research the council has ever received for an ordinance.
That’s not counting the hundreds of voice mails, e-mails and letters received by individual Common Council members, she said.
All nine council members are expected to be present for Monday night's vote. A close vote is anticipated.
