District Councilmembers have a particular need to be aware of issues affecting their district. It has been determined that District Councilmembers should be notified of appeals and variance requests pending on properties within their districts.

Summary
NOW, THEREFORE, Be it ordained by the Council of the City of Toledo:

The reason for the emergency lies in the fact that it is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety and property, and for the further reason that it is necessary that Toledo Municipal Code changes be made to immediately start providing notice to District Councilmembers of matters affecting their council district.
