Library proponents plan rally at City Hall, hire attorney to help initiative case
UPDATE SUNDAY: The rally by the citizens group is at City Hall at 6 p.m. Monday.
The citizens group that supports keeping the downtown Renton library over the Cedar River has retained a lawyer and plans for a rally before Monday's City Council meeting.
Now the future of the initiative rests with the City Council, which will consider it at its meeting 7 p.m. Monday in its City Hall chambers.
In the statement, Avery calls public comments he's seen in the media about his signature-gathering process "baseless and irresponsible."
The group has hired a Bellevue law office to review City Attorney Larry Warren's memorandum, in which he calls the initiative illegal, to determine if Warren's conclusions can be argued.
"It's time for city leadership to listen, embrace and work from a position of goodwill," wrote Avery.
