According to the Mayor's office, McGinn and Bobb had a "good conversation" today, and "the mayor indicated to the monitor that the City accepts the monitoring plan submitted to the court with the mutual understanding that the plan is a living document that can be amended and that the parties will work together on timelines for adoption and implementation of reforms detailed in the Settlement Agreement." The mayor also indicated that City Attorney Pete Holmes will be part of planned "regular meetings" with Bobb and his team moving forward.

Here's the full statement:

Today the mayor had a good conversation with Merrick Bobb in which he addressed a number of the concerns that the city of Seattle has had with the proposed monitoring plan.
