NEW ORLEANS, LA – Tuesday’s City Council food truck fracas got heated, but it came to a halt before the the Councillors were able to reach a solution. Those in front of the dais shook their heads when Council President Head announced the meeting would have to adjourn due to an ‘advertising issue.’ According to Head’s office, the ordinance will have to be withdrawn and reintroduced because it was not billed in accordance with the City Charter.
In a statement from Head’s office, they explained that “The ordinance will have to be withdrawn and reintroduced again because it was not advertised in accordance with the City Charter.”
This was due to an oversight by the Clerk’s office.
According to the Charter, “An ordinance dealing with certain matters must be advertised in the paper between 7 and 14 days of introduction – not before and not after.”
