Work Session Reveals Home Rule Special Call
Mayor Williams explained that the citations will have similarities to a traffic ticket, whereby a driver may have been issued a ticket for an expired license or registration, but has the opportunity to clean the violation by coming into compliance before their court date.
Among the citations subject to correction would be too tall grass, junk storage, sidewalk repairs and certain public health measures.
“They will be able to resolve the issue or deal with the municipal court,” Williams said.
In addition, due to a scheduled May meeting of the state home rule board, if passed, Williams has asked council members for a “special call” following the next work session. Council chairman Mark Bates indicated the “special call” will be Thursday, May 23 at 5 p.m. in council chambers.
The amendment also removes the repealed occupation tax from the city’s home rule plan.
