Troy Councilors Propose Sanctuary City Law

Jun 10, 2019

Two Republican City Councilors are trying to stop Troy from becoming a Sanctuary City.

Troy City Council President Carmella Mantello says she'll propose a local law at the next council meeting in July that would prohibit designating Troy as a Sanctuary City.

"This would require at the minimum three public hearings. We intend told the public hearings all across the city over the month of July and then hopefully vote on this in August and it would be on the ballot in November of 2019."

Democratic Mayor Patrick Madden, who faces Rodney Wiltshire in June 25th’s primary, is on record saying he does have some issues with calling Troy a sanctuary city.

Councilor Jim Gulli, who joins Mantello in the minority, is co-sponsoring the legislation.
