City's Press Release
Here's the official statement – which is incredibly disappointing. Seems to be more about protecting themselves (and the identity of the respondent) than expressing any remorse towards the victim, or making any hard-and-fast commitment to accountability, just "investigations" and "recommendations".
Seems the same guy keeps getting away with the same old things, and the same people continue to allow it.
Here's to Election 2022.
