City officials are expecting a large turnout for today's 6:30 p.m. special Common Council meeting, called to take a new vote on ratifying contracts with three employee unions.
Based on the volume of calls and emails coming in - both in support and in opposition to approving the collective bargaining agreements that had been denied in mid-March - a few aldermen have questioned whether a move to a larger venue such as the Wauwatosa West High School auditorium might better accommodate the public.
The meeting will remain at City Hall, City Administrator James Archambo said.
Ordinance stipulates that moving a meeting requires a vote by the council at its prior meeting. But the petition signed by five aldermen that led to the revote was turned in after the council's most recent meeting.
