Steamboat Briefs: Hayden Town Council could table nuisance ordinance

Pilot & Today Staff

Hayden Town Manager Russ Martin plans to recommend tonight that the Town Council table the second reading of a nuisance ordinance that would allow the town to impose fines on residents who violate sections of Hayden Municipal Code relating to garbage and refuse, weeds and brush, and alarm systems.

The ordinance also was tabled at the Feb. 4 meeting to allow the town attorney to review it. Martin said he thought there needed to be more consistency between the ordinance and the existing code, according to the meeting minutes. Tabling the ordinance again would allow the town attorney more time to make changes.

The meeting is scheduled to begin with staff and council member reports at 7 p.m. today at Hayden Town Hall, 178 W. Jefferson Ave. The regular session is set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
