Troy City Council President Carmella Mantello and a fellow council member will soon introduce legislation about the future of Troy as a sanctuary city.

Mantello says she and fellow Republican council member Jim Gulli are introducing legislation preventing the Collar City from becoming a sanctuary city. If this local law proposal makes it to November’s ballot, voters will have the opportunity to block potential action from the city council.

A resolution declaring Troy as a sanctuary city continues to be tabled at council meetings, and was supposed to be discussed at last week’s meeting. Mantello says she plans to introduce this local law at July’s city council meeting.

If Troy were to get such a designation, it would impact how city departments, including the police, interact with the public.
