Union Bridge council considers ordinance to control 'nuisances'

November 26, 1997

The Union Bridge Town Council is considering an ordinance that would make obstructing traffic and blocking sidewalks misdemeanors subject to a $25 fine.

State Police Tfc. Leonard Mays, a resident trooper who provides town police protection, said some teen-agers and young adults have been sitting in the streets, leaving doors of parked cars open or hanging out on the sidewalks, blocking pedestrians.

Councilwoman Kathleen D. Kreimer introduced the proposed ordinance.

Mays said no one has been injured and that the problem is "more of a nuisance" than an "injury situation."

The council will hold a public hearing on the proposed ordinance when it meets at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 at the town hall, 104 W. Locust St.
