Controversial proposed ordinance withdrawn at city council session

The main topic of discussion during Thursday's session of the Cotter City Council was a proposed amendment to an ordinance allowing the Cotter School District to build a trap field on school property and the Cotter Shooting Sports Team to discharge firearms within the city limits. After the discussion, the proposal was withdrawn by Cotter School District Superintendent Vanessa Thomas-Jones.

Cotter Planning and Zoning Chairman Matt Caradine and other citizens spoke to the council in opposition to the amendment. Thomas-Jones then addressed the council with the proposed ordinance to amend the previous ordinance, but she later withdrew the proposal. Thomas-Jones will look to revise the proposal and re-present it at a later date.

Cotter Mayor Peggy Hammack says the council had several other issues to attend to.
