(CONSTANTINE) – No action was taken on the proposal of creating an ordinance committee for the Village of Constantine.

During Monday's Village Council meeting, Village Manager Mark Honeysett shared in a memorandum that the agenda item was brought by a man who believes the citizenry should have more input with regard to amending and revising current ordinances or crafting new ones for the Village. Honeysett says this would seem to suggest that the public has never had a chance to provide their input.

Honeysett says that has not been the case in Constantine. ...... {LISTEN}.

Honeysett says the job of reviewing ordinances, drafting changes or creating new ordinances falls to Constantine's ordinance officer, their attorney and to Honeysett as Village Manager and Police Chief.

Honeysett said he was staunchly opposed to creating an ordinance committee. Village Trustee Kenda Cartagena asked why, and Honeysett explains. ...... {LISTEN}.

Some citizens spoke to the Council saying that this kind of committee is needed, but Council members did not bring the matter up for a vote.
