This week’s West St. Paul City Council meeting included the long-awaited conclusion to the mural debate, a pro-union resolution that will likely draw a veto, a heated moment during citizen comments, and goodbyes to two well-respected city staff members.
West St. Paul’s City Council will consider whether to change the sign ordinance to allow murals, plus a union resolution, tattoo tweaks, more liquor stores, and more.
While the regular West St. Paul City Council meeting was cut short due to an emergency declaration and curfew, the work session included heated debate on the Black Lives Matter mural.
There’s not a lot on the regular meeting agenda for the West St. Paul City Council, though important conversations will happen during the Open Council Work Session (OCWS), including potentially creating a new committee and a resolution to support AT&T union employees.
AT&T plans to close 95 retail stores nationwide, including the West St. Paul store, prompting a protest from the local union.
