A week after passing a resolution commending former President Barack Obama for his dedicated service, Council passed a resolution Monday opposing new President Donald Trump's ban on immigration from seven Middle East countries. Council also passed  resolutions promoting racial healing throughout 2017 and urging the Ohio Department of Education to continue funding a grant for an afterschool program that services 20,000 students from low-income families statewide.
