Council Postpones Nuisance Gathering Ordinance Vote
Last night, the State College Borough Council decided that the decision on the Nuisance Gathering Ordinance (NGO), which had previously been scheduled for the evening’s agenda, would be postponed until February 2010.
The decision to postpone the meeting came about in light of new information received today by the Council in a letter from the ACLU. In order to properly address the new recommendations from the ACLU, the council agreed that it was not ready to come to a decision yet and that it would be postponed. Council-President and Mayor-Elect Elizabeth Goreham called for a newer, more “adult” approach to the way that the ordinance was being handled, and Borough Manager Thomas Fountaine thought it was appropriate to postpone the decision.
