Ephedrine ordinance

City Council to take final vote Tuesday


An ordinance that would restrict the location of products containing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine likely will fly through final approval.

The measure has been approved by the Craig City Council, whose members again will consider the proposal this week. The council meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers at Craig City Hall.

The ordinance was proposed by members of a community-based methamphetamine task force to make it more difficult for illegal-drug manufacturers to access crucial ingredients. Ephedrine is one.

Area stores will be required to keep products that have ephedrine as their primary active ingredients behind locked doors or behind a manned counter.

Other business will include:

n Considering approval of a hotel and restaurant liquor license for the Golden Cavvy.

n Hearing a request from Craig resident Les Hampton that the council send the Library Board of Trustees a letter encouraging them to require pornography filtering software on all publicly accessed computers.
