    • Debate ensued. Tim A. expressed concern about the fact that the numbers offered by CPS don’t add up. The general opinion of the council was that while CPS has put LSCs in a poor position with both the timing of the budget numbers and the lack of clarity around them, that failing to pass Mr. Toledo’s allocation of those dollars would cause undo harm to the school. The vote was called again, with Mr. Toledo no longer abstaining.
