Coming up this week: July 6 - July 12

Posted By on Tue, Jul 7, 2015 at 9:58 AM

In April, Pittsburgh police responded to 10 heroin overdoes over one 24-hour period. This week Pittsburgh City Council will host a special meeting on the large number of heroin overdoses that have occurred in recent months. The meeting, set for July 9 at 1 p.m. in council chambers was requested by District Councilor Natalia Rudiak.

Also coming up this week is a public hearing on historic designation for two structures in Lawrenceville. The two properties, known as the Walton and Turney houses date back to the 1800s.

At a press conference this morning, District 5 Councilor Corey O'Connor will also propose legislation that would require all Pittsburgh employers to provide paid sick leave for their employees.
