The meeting took place at Gaithersburg City Hall which is located on 31 South Summit Avenue.

The City Council had a full agenda for Monday night’s meeting, but the biggest draw for the evening was 20 year old Tyrell “Ty” Williams. Williams, a former football player at Quince Orchard High School, graduated in 2013 and enrolled at Georgetown University where he continued to play football.

Williams suffered serious neck and spine injuries during the first game of the 2015 season. After undergoing surgery, Williams spent three months at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. He returned home in December continue his studies at Georgetown University.
