Move to repeal 21-and-over takes another step forward

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The push to repeal Iowa City's 21-and-over ordinance has taken another step forward.

Marian Karr, City Clerk of Iowa City, says that Raj Patel, co-founder of Yes to Entertaining Students Safely, has turned in more than the required signatures to get the city council to either repeal the ordinance or have it placed on the November ballot.

Karr says the group needed to hand in 1,227 verified signatures and turned in 1,688 bringing the total number of valid signatures to 2,961.

The Iowa City Council will either repeal the ordinance or move to have it placed on the November ballot at the July 12, 2010 meeting.
