It may soon be legal to hold dances on Sundays in Alexandria.
That's right, since 1992 its been against city rules to hold a public dance in the city of Alexandria on a Sunday.
But the city council thinks the rule is "outdated," and noted in its agenda for Monday night's meeting that the rule is "no longer used."
The city rule doesn't just ban dances on Sundays. It also requires people get a license if they plan to hold a public dance with a cover charge and that a police officer be at the event. It also bans alcohol, prostitutes and drunk people from the dances, among other restrictions.
The city council's agenda says the ordinance was used to regulate outdoor dances, but now the city uses special events permits for that.
The council held its first reading of the ordinance to get rid of these "outdated" rules on Monday, and the Echo Press reports the council voted 5-0 in favor of rescinding the ordinance.
But it's not official yet. GoMN has reached out to the city for more information on when the final vote will be held on this.
