City of Rochester citizens will get to weigh in this fall on whether Rochester gets a police accountability board.

On Tuesday, members of City Council unanimously agreed to pave the way for the creation of the nine-member board.

The matter has been a topic of discussion for months. City leaders solicited input during public hearings.

Under the proposal, the board would be staffed by Rochester residents who are trained in local laws and police department procedures.

The referendum vote will be held on Election Day in November, giving residents the final say on whether a police accountability board will be put into effect.
