City Council

City Council Update - June 5, 2017

It was a well-attended meeting with more than 60 visitors and 24 people who addressed the City Council from the microphone. The Northville Democratic Club, members of the group Indivisible, and others spoke about their interest in marching in the Independence Day Parade. Mayor Ken Roth advised the speakers that the parade is organized by the Community Foundation, which has a permit to hold the parade, and they set the rules about who can appear in it. Their rules call for no political parties or candidates for office to be involved in the parade, and state that only elected officials already serving in office can march in the parade. Councilmembers encouraged the Community Foundation and the political groups to meet and attempt to find a compromise to resolve the situation.
