The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 38 filed a petition Tuesday to block the vote on Wheeling's two man cruiser ordinance.
The city just received the complaint Thursday and they have 30 days to respond.
Wheeling City Manager Bob Herron said the allegations made by the FOP are not true. Heron also said city council followed all the rules when enacting this ordinance.
The attorney representing Local 38 ,Steve Herndon said City Council didn't follow the correct process to call a special meeting for the first reading of the ordinance saying the FOP didn't have the opportunity to be present at the meeting to express their concerns.
Herron said that is not true and he has the meeting minutes to back it up.
Herron said ''City Council followed all the proper procedures, this was an appropriately enacted ordinance and that the vote will go on November 6th and people will have the opportunity to consider giving the police chief the flexability to assign officer's to cruisers, in a manner that he feels is the most efficient and effective for the community."
Herron said that the only part of the FOP's allegations that are accurate is that City Council met at noon on August 7th. He said they did that so that council member's could attend the National Night Out event at Wheeling Park
Herron also added notice of that meeting change was advertised in the local paper 7 days prior to the meeting.
