UPDATE: The Special Housing and Human Needs Committee meeting set for January 17 is cancelled, and the current ordinance will be withdrawn. A new version of the ordinance will bepresented in draft form at the next Housing and Human Needs Committee meeting on January 27, 2014. Therefore, per MACCNO, tomorrow's rally at 11am outside City Hall will still go on as scheduled. "It's not over until it has been officially withdrawn and a new process is announced."
The City Council's new noise ordinance goes to the Housing and Human Needs Committee on Friday, January 17 at NOON for further review before it heads to the full City Council for a vote.
The Council's Housing and Human Needs Committee will be in special session on Friday, January 17, 2014 in the City Council Chamber, 1300 Perdido Street.
There will be a rally at 11am in Duncan Plaza
