    Regarding the Pawn Shop Ordinance and potential City of Ruston gun registration, is this scheduled for public hearing in March?

    • Walter Abbott Says:

      I think that is accurate. The ordinance was introduced only at the 2/6 meeting. Normally, at the next meeting (the first Monday of the month for Ruston City Council), a public hearing is held for that particular ordinance and then it is voted upon.

      LA RS 33:406 describes the proper legal procedure for ordinances.
