Fuller on Saggy Pants, Food Trucks and Cops at Council Meetings [VIDEO]
Shreveport City Councilwoman LeVette Fuller talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the most recent council meeting, including the repeal of the city's "saggy pants" law, new regulations for food trucks and the enforcement of public speaking limits at council meetings.
Fuller, who authored the legislation which had received a good measure of national media coverage, tells KEEL listeners that the new measure will go into effect seven days after it is signed by Mayor Adrian Perkins. The mayor had publicly backed the repeal, but no date is set for the official signing.
The first term councilwoman also explains new regulations regarding the growing number of food trucks, including rules regarding city registration and approved areas of operation.
Fuller also explains the council's dilemma in enforcing rules for public comments at their twice monthly meetings. She also talks about the just instituted practice of City Marshals attending meetings and the public's reaction to the presence of law enforcement.
