Huntsville outlines next steps in protest review at upcoming Council meetings

Published on June 10, 2020

The Huntsville City Council welcomes public input at its Thursday night meeting. Individuals who would like to address Council may register in the lobby to speak and they will be called into Chambers at their appointed turn. Social distancing and sanitation protocols remain in place which limits seating in the Council Chambers to about 15 people.

“It’s been an emotionally charged time for our community and the country, and we’re listening,” said Council President Devyn Keith. “We want to hear from you.”

Earlier this week Mayor Tommy Battle informed Council he asked Police Chief Mark McMurray to provide an after-action review of recent protest events that led to the use of tear gas and pepper spray by City police. Chief McMurray will present to Council at a special-called meeting on Thursday, June 18. The Police Citizens Advisory Council has begun reviewing the incidents and will present its report to Council August 1.

The City Council Meetings are live broadcast on HSV TV, channel 16 Comcast and channel 42 WOW. They are also livestreamed on the City of Huntsville website and on the City’s Facebook page.
