No to Ordinance 2012-13

August 22, 2012

Four of six of Walhalla’s elected leaders want no part of an ordinance that would prevent anyone convicted of a crime from carrying anything around that could be misconstrued as a weapon. Chairman T-J Bagwell of the General Government Committee could muster only one other supporter for his proposed ordinance, which apparently grew from complaints by senior citizen walkers concerned about an item displayed by another walker. The proposed ordinance failed last night at first reading in a vote of two in favor and four against. Council members David Underwood and Jennifer Woodward Crawford were among those concerned about the time it would take to police the ordinance along with the potential that it would be a nuisance to those who were stopped by the police and found to be doing nothing wrong. Bagwell, who is an attorney, explained that his intent was to do nothing to hinder those who obey the law.
