Sheet Metal Workers local union No. 33 plans to continue pursuing a lawsuit against the city regarding prompt review of public documents despite union members' ability to view Chesapeake Lofts blueprints Tuesday.
Union member Joe Thayer asked city officials to view the blueprints Friday morning. By 3 p.m., the city received a lawsuit from the union alleging the city denied Thayer the right to view the public documents.
Thayer said on previous occasions the blueprints and other documents he has requested were available immediately for review.
The city complied with state law, Icsman said. Decision-makers weren't in the office Friday, he said, making compiling the request not feasible for the office staff.
