Mayor Looks at Security Procedures at City Hall

In the wake of the Clarksville, Tennessee City Council shooting, Bowling Green City Hall takes a look at its own security procedures.

Mayor Elaine Walker says after last week's shooting, she met with Bowling Green Police to decide what, if anything should be done at City Commission meetings.

Mayor Walker says making the building accessible to the public from only one door and installing metal detectors were discussed, but won't become a reality.

"City Hall is really the people's building. We want to make sure that people feel comfortable coming into our commission chambers and City Hall," explained Bowling Green Mayor Elaine Walker.

She says right now, nothing will be done to tighten security during commission meetings at City Hall.
