City Hall filling up for contract vote; follow along here

April 19, 2011

More than 230 people have filled Wauwatosa City Hall and there's still more than 20 minutes before a special meeting to revote on ratifying union contracts begins.

People started showing up at 4 p.m., but the council chamber wasn't opened until 5:30 p.m. At that point at long line of people filed in, filling every seat in the chambers. Capacity of 172 has been reached, and an overflow room is standing-room only.

Police and Fire officials are providing security and making sure the crowd remains orderly. The council members have not yet arrived.
