Tuesday, June 14 is the second and (hopefully) final reading of Ord 03-16.A, otherwise known as “the party ordinance”. Our City Council, based upon input from the public and city staff, recognizes loud and unruly conduct is an increasing problem in our city. The City Council has requested changes to the current ordinance that include:
• Adding a provision to make it a violation to attend a loud or unruly gathering,
• Extend the time period for a second response to be issued beyond the current ten days to the next June 30,
• Add provisions for Private Right of Abatement and attorney fees,
• Close possible loopholes for self-reporting parties.

While we are expecting our elected leaders to unanimously pass this ordinance, you are invited to attend the council meeting to show your support. Information on the event can be found on the Respect Orange Event page, by clicking here.
