Evansville City Council meets to discuss proposed amendment


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) Evansville City Council members met Monday night for the first time since heated debate over defunding the police dominated the last discussion.

A woman took the podium to take on City Council President Alex Burton over his proposal to redirect funds involving the public safety fund and the affordable housing fund.

Some say it’s defunding the police and want the amendment dropped.

The council did not discuss Burton’s amendment Monday night.

The council is expected to vote on the budget issue and any amendments at the next meeting in October.
