CAO/BoS: How to walk back that urgency ordinance
County CAO Phillip Smith-Hanes has reported back to the Board of Supervisors with proposed revisions to the county’s controversial-because-unconstitutional “urgency ordinance.” According to Smith-Hanes’ document, which is termed a preliminary draft, the modifications would remove the curfew and allow attended signs and tables during daylight hours. They would still be forbidden outside of daylight hours.
In addition, an initial violation of the modified ordinance would constitute an infraction rather than a misdemeanor; Smith-Hanes believes this would aid in enforcement of the modified ordinance.
