Akron council to hold rare caucus Tuesday; speed bumps to be among topics

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: July 11, 2014

Akron City Council doesn't often have caucuses, but will have one Tuesday.

The caucus will be from 3 to 5:30 p.m. in council chambers on the third floor of Akron City Hall, 166 S. High St. (The ending time is firm because of a Housing Appeals Board meeting that starts at 6 p.m.)

Council President Garry Moneypenny called the caucus at the urging of some council members, particularly Councilman Russel Neal, Jr.

Topics are expected to include fire department promotions, the results of the recent Safe Surrender program and the possibility of adding speed bumps in Akron neighborhoods to slow down motorists. Councilman Mike Freeman has long been a proponent of speed bumps.

The caucus is open to the public just as committee and regular meetings are.
