AURORA, Colo. — Monday night’s Aurora City Council vote on “Civil Service Discipline” may have been tabled indefinitely, but firefighters are not taking any chances.

They planned to be in attendance to see the process through.

The city council was set to vote on the proposed amendment, which would have put the burden of proof on a firefighter or police officer during a discipline appeals process.

If the disciplined employee does not meet the burden of proof, the punishment shall stand.

If the council would have voted in favor of the measure, it would be placed on the November ballot.
