Aldermanic Liaison Report

By Greg Nagel

I met with Alderman Flores on 10/23/07 to discuss EVA business. The Alderman indicated to me that he had a meeting the other day where he is lobbying to bring back the lockup at the Wood St. police station. Furthermore, he indicated he is also lobbying to ensure that our patrol and gang officers are never pulled out of our district which has been periodically happening during busy weekend hours.

We discussed the handbill ordinance and I relayed to him the group’s concern regarding what appears to us as a lack of enforcement. I expressed to him that we are looking for a process where there is regular enforcement.

Alderman Flores indicated that he is going to follow up with the Department of Streets & Sanitation, Manny Gonzales, and will get back to me.
