Monticello City Council should have the draft of a nuisance ordinance in their hands by the next regular meeting which is set for Monday, May 13.

    The council met in a special work session on Tuesday, April 30 to 
work on the ordinance to clean up problem areas of the city.
    Mayor Tracie Sexton said the council had a copy of a sample 
ordinance that is being used in Paris, Ky.
    The sample included several suggestions that she has made to include 
more specific definitions that are currently in the city's nuisance 
    No action was taken during the meeting, but the council did discuss 
changes that need to be made to the ordinance, as well as penalties 
for those who violate it.
    Sexton said that City Attorney Gordon German will talk with the 
Regional PRIDE Coordinator about the ordinance and will bring 
information back to the council.
    Sexton noted that the council will likely have the first reading of 
a public nuisance ordinance at the meeting on May 13.
    The newest member of the city council was present for Tuesday's 
meeting. Sexton said she swore in council member Scott Gehring on 
Tuesday afternoon.
    Gehring was recently selected to fill the vacancy left by Scott  Flynn's resignation from the council.
