City leader wants clarity on saggy pants ban
BAKER- One city leaders wants a discussion on how a 2008 law is being enforced dealing with low-hanging pants.
Joyce Burges will lead the talk about the law at the city council meeting Tuesday. Currently, pants that hang below the waste and expose underwear or skin is illegal.
"I want to open the door for discussion," Burges said. "I want to know what other people are thinking," she said about adding the item to the agenda. Bruges said she wants to make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to what is banned and how it is enforced.
Next week, the Iberville Parish Council will discuss a similar, new law there. Since 2008, numerous local governments enacted bans that were nicknamed the "sagging pants ban."
Also Tuesday, city leaders in Baker are expected to discuss spending.
