NO SIDEWALK CHALK ALLOWED IN DEFIANCE

It’s entirely con­sti­tu­tional… That’s how Defi­ance Law Direc­tor David Williams por­trayed Defiance’s side­walk ordi­nance at Tues­day night’s Defi­ance City Coun­cil Meet­ing.

Williams told coun­cil that the city’s ordi­nance pro­hibit­ing “paint­ing” on side­walks is “entirely con­sti­tu­tional,” and indi­cated that the word “paint­ing” is a verb refer­ring to the act of inscrib­ing some­thing on a side­walk.

It all fol­lows a ques­tion raised by sev­eral Defi­ance res­i­dents at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing about using chalk on side­walks. They were told to stop it last Octo­ber by the city police department.
