  In her statement Moore said “the topic of access to restrooms within private businesses…should not have been” presented at the meeting and regretted “the discussion was even held.

  Moore said “as facilitator of these meetings, I pledge to try to keep this body’s focus on the business it has been charged with carrying out.”


  After the Tuesday’s meeting Lewis said the mayor handled the situation fine and agreed with her statement.
