Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero’s statement about the E-911 board, from a release:
Mayor Madeline Rogero has directed her staff to fully review the sequence of events leading up to last week’s meeting of the E-911 Board of Directors. Mayor Rogero is a member of the Board, but like prior mayors, is represented by a proxy. When the Board met on Jan. 21, Mayor Rogero was in Washington, D.C., for a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
“I understand the questions raised about the E-911 Board meeting last week,” Mayor Rogero said. “This has been a long and complicated process, and we are gathering relevant information so that I can understand what happened and what the next steps are. I am committed to full transparency and ensuring that we have public confidence in the actions of the Board.”
In gathering this information, Mayor Rogero is respecting all Sunshine Law restrictions on her communications with other members of the Board, including Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch and Fire Chief Stan Sharp.
