Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) tweeted a thread about Tuesday’s public safety committee meeting and the vote on an ordinance establishing community oversight of the police department and wrote “This is a fundamental step towards transparency and accountability at every level of government.

Ald. Andre Vasquez (40) wrote in a news release that he “filed an ordinance with City Council on Monday that calls for a review of the City’s 311 system, including ‘technical improvements to the system, consultation with members of the City Council, improving accuracy of response times, and creating more transparency for the public users.’”
