The Inglewood city council convened for its weekly city council meeting Sept. 13 where residents called in and spoke in person regarding the continued denial of residents into council chambers to attend public meetings.
One by one residents called in demanding for council chambers to be reopened to the public, which Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. defiantly said no.
“The state allows us to do it and we will continue to do so,” said Butts.
He described that it was to protect employees from the COVID-19 virus, however, city staff are made to setup and attend public events which puts them in more jeopardy then residents coming in to handle their business and attend meetings.
Comments were made in the live feed broadcast on Facebook that the City’s social media team deleted from the page. The meeting was then uploaded hours later with the comments removed.
