Proposed change to "Public Good Order" Ordinance could be postponed

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A proposed change to the "Public Good Order" Ordinance in the City of Eau Claire could be delayed until May.

Monday night, many people spoke out against the ordinance, which is aimed at neighborhoods largely populated by students.

This ordinance would include fines for public intoxication, public disruption, changes to bus and shuttle services and more.

The Eau Claire Police Department said since May 2017, it's received more than 200 noise complaints in the west district area.

The UW-Eau Claire Student Senate wants the ordinance postponed to have a bigger role in helping to formulate the proposed amendments.

Council members are expected to decide whether to delay the vote at Tuesday's meeting.
