( Cincinnati ) - At the start of Wednesday's regular City Council meeting, members immediately took up the $450,000 package of reforms to the city's Emergency Communication Center that passed on Tuesday.

The measure to hire more staff, integrate technology, and upgrade equipment passed unanimously.

It's in response to the death of 16-year-old Kyle Plush, who died earlier this month despite calling 911 for help twice. The police department is still investigating the circumstances of the teen's death.

Acting City Manager Patrick Duhaney has said that a comprehensive action plan will be introduced by the end of April.
