Council President J. Willie Reynolds announced Dolan's removal in a memo to other Council members late yesterday.
"[G]iven the ongoing Grand Jury investigation and the upcoming discussion of a new lease for the Fox Environmental Center, Council Member Dolan’s role as Chair of the Parks and Public Property Committee could give the appearance of a conflict of interest."Reynolds indicated that he discussed this matter in advance with Dolan, who agreed to the change.
The Parks Committee will now be chaired by Cathy Reuscher. The other two members are Bryan Callahan and Mike Recchiuti
