LEWISTON — The City Council’s agenda for Tuesday night also includes an update from police officials on the continued investigation into the death of Donald Giusti in June after a violent altercation near Kennedy Park.

Lewiston Police Chief Brian O’Malley.

According to the council memo, Lewiston Police Chief Brian O’Malley will “provide an overview of the enhanced policing efforts undertaken by his department and in conjunction with other public safety agencies in response to recent incidents in Lewiston.”

In addition, the Maine State Police will provide an update on their ongoing investigation into Giusti’s death, the memo said.

Following the meeting, an executive session is scheduled for the council to enter into contract negotiations with Lewiston’s police union. The police contract expired June 30, and the two sides have failed to come to an agreement. In response, Lewiston patrol officers began wearing green police T-shirts as a form of protest.
