A Vandalia Alderwoman says she will make a motion to see if the Vandalia City Council will take another look at an ordinance approved at their June 1st meeting. The ordinance was amending the City Municipal Code for Public Peace, Morals and Welfare and adding offenses against Public Peace and Decency. The part that was added states “No person shall beg or solicit within the city limits except when acting as a representative of a recognized charitable organization.” But, Ward two Alderwoman Dorothy Crawford says she believes the ordinances goes too far in some areas.
And, Crawford says they should still certainly be able to help folks in need.
Crawford says she plans to bring the measure up for another vote at the City Council’s next meeting. The Vandalia City Council will meet on Monday, June 15th at Vandalia City Hall.
