Vote delayed on party ordinance

The vote on the ordinance involving party permits and lawn parking in South Bend is once again being delayed.

A proposed ordinance would allow lawn parking if people gave 50 cents per car to the city.

Another section would require people to get a “party permit” before hosting a party with alcohol and more than 25 people.

On Monday the vote was delayed because it is being rewritten with big changes.

“It's my opinion that now the bill is more concise. It's clearer, easier to understand and enforce, so it well might be the last one so we just might have to see about that,” said common council member Ann Puzzello.

Notre Dame student body president, Liz Brown, said, “Unfortunately I think a lot of students would look at an ordinance like this and see it as a step back.”

Even though she does not support the bill, Brown says that she hopes other students will realize they need to start being better neighbors.
