There was a confrontation before Tuesday evening’s marathon City Council meeting even began. Police met a group of more than 50 protestors at the side door of Kingston City Hall to tell them the council had decided to ban signs in the meeting, during which the council would vote on whether to allow the police department to acquire an updated armored vehicle Lenco Bearcat G1.
