Dayton Tables Weapons Ordinance

The town council in Dayton tabled a discussion of an ordinance prohibiting discharge of weapons in city limits until a full council can be convened.

Action came at Wednesday night's meeting, when several residents of the town objected to provisions in the proposed ordinance that would ban firing of pellet guns and arrows. Councilor Bob Alley was absent.

In other action, the council gave second-reading approval to a proposed new floodplain ordinance, but will read a letter objecting to the document before the proposed new law comes up for third and final reading.

A resident who owns a house in the floodplain gave the letter to councilors. The council did not read the letter during the meeting, because of the length. The ordinance passed second reading with one nay vote from Councilor Joey Sheeley.
