Public Hearing Set for "Pay to Play" Ordinance



As promised, the Board of Aldermen has set the date of Tuesday October 14th, 7:00 PM for the public to deliver their perspective on the "Pay to Play" Ordinance that has been filling headlines since last year.

This item has been the topic of much debate in the Aldermanic Chambers, as well as, social media, so the commentary will be worth watching.

Can you inform me of exactly what is Pay to Play? I thought I was current on local topics, but this one has me stumped.

"Pay to Play" is a phrase that connects the issuance of City contracts and other perks to paying of elected officials. The Board of Aldermen wants to pass an ordinance attempting to ban or regulate this practice but it seems to be focused solely on preventing developers to donate to the mayor.
