Just a reminder, the Safe Passing Ordinance will be voted on this week by the City Council. The Council meeting for the actual passage of the ordinance will be on Tuesday, May 15th and Council will begin at noon.
If it is possible to be present at the Council meetings to show your support, you can contact your respective council member. If you have a relationship with a Council member please contact them and express your support and thank them for the passage of the ordinance.
