RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Before Wednesday afternoons City Council meeting, City of Reno officials attended an attorney-client meeting to map out what is next between the City and the Reno Fire Fighters Association.
A district judge granted a preliminary injunction Tuesday in the lawsuit filed by the fire union against the City to prevent changes. The ruling to hold off the layoffs is not a final decision, but rather an effort to "preserve the status quo" until a decision is reached.
In a statement, City Manager Andrew Clinger told News 4 "While we respect the judge's decision, we are disappointed that we will be forced to continue to use the city's limited financial resources on legal services relating to this matter, instead of using those resources to provide services to the community."
City officials are now shifting their focus towards the legal, operational and financial options on the table as the lawsuit and fire operations move forward. News 4 will be inside city chambers with the latest on these decisions.
