BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - The Biddeford, Maine, City Council is pushing back a meeting to hear more comments about allegations of sexual abuse against former police officers.

Biddeford city officials say the meeting will take place on May 28 instead of on Tuesday. Officials say the meeting will also be held in a larger venue than the City Council chambers. Mayor Alan Casavant says residents had concerns about the meeting’s time and location.

Residents prompted the meeting with a petition circulated by a resident about the response of city officials to the abuse allegations.

The Maine attorney general’s office is investigating sex abuse allegations made against retired police officer Stephen Dodd. Dodd’s attorney did not return a phone message seeking comment. The city has not yet announced the venue for the May 28 meeting.
