BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - Boston City councilors are asking for an in-person hearing centered on Mayor Michelle Wu administration's pandemic policies.

City Councilors Frank Baker and Erin Murphy introduced a hearing order, which goes to committee for the hearing and could take place as soon as next week.

"This is just a chance to give people an opportunity to ask what's going on here," Baker said. He added that Mayor Wu's administration has "not been paying attention to business needs."

Mayor Wu has been facing controversy since stepping into her role as Mayor of Boston; drawing protests at City Hall and in front of her home in Roslindale. Her administration's vaccine mandate is now facing a lawsuit that's put enforcement of the worker vaccine requirement on hold.

City Councilor Lydia Edwards, who is also a state senator, thanked Murphy and Baker for introducing the measure and said she hopes for a hearing that will lead to "more questions answered and more transparency."
