Agenda Item 51: Tampa City Council Takes on Prostitution and Possible Human Trafficking on Kennedy Blvd
Even though the agenda item was second to last in the 2 and a half hour meeting, the Council members responded to the report given by the city attorney with enthusiasm. This positive energy and the thoughtful questions and comments show that they are seriously committed to moving forward with a strategy to end the illicit massage parlor blight on Kennedy Blvd, and throughout the city.
