Mayor Mike Houston disputes the contention that he misled aldermen during a closed-door discussion about the police department file shredding scandal back in May.
Some aldermen want to release the audio recording of that meeting.
Alderman Frank Edwards says it will show that the mayor did not disclose what he knew about whether objections had been raised within the police department prior to the destruction of those records.
But Houston says he was not specifically asked that question, and did not withhold information that the aldermen requested. Both Edwards and Houston say the recordings will prove their side of the story.
But the mayor has asked attorney Jon Gray Noll to address the City Council Tuesday about whether releasing those recordings now could compromise the ongoing investigation, or pending litigation, related to the document destruction.
