In a split vote, the City Council this week passed an ordinance that is somewhat stricter than state law on where sex offenders can live.
State law requires that sex offenders live at least 1,000 feet away from a school or daycare center. The city’s new ordinance would expand that to playgrounds, parks and the city’s recreation center.
The ordinance was proposed by Mayor Tony Marquez, who told the council that the city can’t always depend on state law.
