City Council Rejects Sex Offender Residency Restrictions
FALLS CITY – City council discussed and took action on whether or not to draft an ordinance restricting the distance a registered sex offender(s) can live to a school or a licensed daycare.
Joan Stoller, the resident that requested the agenda item, spoke again on how she believed this particular ordinance would protect children in the community. Stoller originally requested the agenda item after a registered sex offender had moved into a home on her street. A daycare provider, who also runs her business on the same street, also attended the meeting and spoke to the council. The daycare provider stated to the council that she has had no issues with the offender.
