DC Committee votes down Fire Chief Ellerbe's plan

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC -

The D.C. City Council’s Judiciary Committee voted down a plan Friday by the mayor and the fire chief to re-deploy ambulances during peak demand times.

A vote that came one day after Chairman Tommy Wells released a highly critical report on the department’s staffing and resources.

The vote was four to zero with committee member Murial Bowser abstaining, telling committee Chairman Tommy Wells she needed more time to study the report.

But even with Bowser's abstention the committee is sending a message to the full council the plan should not be approved.

Wells says he knows of no council members who are in favor of it.
