Gretna Officials Working To Update City's Outdated Laws

GRETNA, LA (AP) — Gretna officials are working with a private company to overhaul the city's code of ordinances. They want to root out any outdated, redundant and unconstitutional provisions that may have accumulated over the years.

         The New Orleans Advocate’s Chad Calder reports a copy of the changes recommended by Tallahassee, Florida-based Municipal Code Corp. was available online early last week. However, the city took it down temporarily so officials could review the potential changes and offer feedback.

         The council was supposed to vote on the changes last week but deferred the matter after realizing it needed more time to go through the document.

         The last major rewrite of the code was in 1997, and officials said that's enough time for a buildup of ordinances that are inconsistent with previous ones.
