According to an article in the Morning Call*, Mayor Pawlowski and Council President Michael D'Amore met about council's acting up; council did not pass an ordinance charging brides a fee to use the rose gardens for photographs. One must understand that this is the first time Allentown City Council has denied a request by the mayor**. After rubber stamping a new 10 million dollar bond, and refinancing 22 million more in bonds**, the mayor does not expect city council to act as an equal branch of city government. He refers to the recent insubordination as a bump in the road, expecting council to henceforth comply with the will of the people. Apparently Mr. Pawlowski feels his initiatives are the will of the people.
