Public hearings scheduled
The public is invited to sound off on two proposed ordinance changes at a public hearing in Canton at the board of aldermen meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Canton town hall.
The first proposed change is to allow the consumption of alcohol on public streets and sidewalks for board approved special events.
The second proposed ordinance change is an amendment to the smoking policy for the public and for employees, which would designate smoking areas and give guidelines to employees for when and where it is appropriate to smoke or use smokeless tobacco.
Both public hearings will take place at the beginning of the board meeting.
