West St. Paul

City Council Preview: June 8, 2020

Local stories depend on you. Support West St. Paul Reader.

The only thing on the agenda for Monday’s West St. Paul City Council meeting is the consent agenda, which includes a few routine items and a couple items noted below. That’s it.

Just like all recent meetings, this one will be held virtually with no in-person public attendance.

Reviewing Police Use of Force

The most notable item on the regular City Council consent agenda is a directive for the Public Safety Committee to review the police department’s Use of Force policy and report back to City Council.


The 52nd Annual West St. Paul Fastpitch Tournament is trying to happen this summer despite COVID-19. Current restrictions won’t allow the tournament to take place, but organizers are hoping those restrictions will be lifted by the tentative July 17-19 dates. So they’re trying to move ahead with planning and follow all CDC and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines. They’re looking for city approval to move ahead with their plans, assuming the state will allow it.

It’s on the consent agenda, so it’s likely to be approved.

No Agenda Items

There’s no other city business on the agenda.

The public can watch the meeting live on Town Square TV or cable channel 18 starting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 8, 2020. There will be a call-in number displayed on the screen to allow for citizen comments and public hearings.
