Yesterday paperwork was filed by local resident John Bower to try to repeal Flagstaff’s recently approved party ordinance through a referendum. Critics of the ordinance call it overreaching and excessive and say it is an unnecessary law aimed at raising revenue for the Flagstaff Police Department.
A post on Change.org from the organizers of the referendum effort says:
“Jun 12, 2015 — I would like to proudly announce the formation of The Nuisance Party for the Repeal of Flagstaff Ordinance 2015-08!
Myself, Chairman, and Ben Alfich, Treasurer, are looking for volunteers to begin circulating a physical petition around the city limits of Flagstaff.
WE HAVE UNTIL THURSDAY AT 5PM TO GATHER 1691 SIGNATURES.
If you or anyone you know would like to lend a hand mobilizing and getting this petition around to as many residents of the City of Flagstaff as possible, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for Facebook events and other updates. Thank you all for getting us this far. Our efforts and concern will not be ignored!”
