After backlash for its decision to no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of their meetings, the St. Louis Park City Council is revisiting the topic.

The city council said Thursday night that the council heard many comments from the community and it has decided to revisit the topic at its July 8 session.

During its meeting last week, councilors passed a resolution, 5-0, that said the meetings won't start by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance due to concern it intimidated some newer residents in a climate of political polarization and controversy over federal immigration policies. It was set to go into effect July 15.
