Putting space between MayorWhiteChiefHurtt

KHOU-11’s Lee McGuire has details of a development in HPD’s facial hair policy fight:

Houston City Council heard from those officers while debating whether to spend $150,000 on private attorneys to defend the no-beard policy.

Officer Raul Collins says he’s suing to get back on the street.

The Mayor is now suggesting mediation without going before a judge.

Since it appears HPD’s basis for the policy is in question (gas masks do fit over beards, according to the officers), this is a ridiculous policy for the city to have to defend, and Mayor White probably would rather it just go away.
