SUISUN CITY — The city council will also vote on repealing portions of the municipal code dealing with the sex offenders’ proximity to childrens’ facilities at its regular meeting Tuesday.
A staff report noted that two state appeals courts recently found that similar ordinances in Orange County and Irvine were void because they were preempted by state laws regulating sex offenders.
On April 8, the city received a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union requesting an immediate appeal of the city’s sex offender ordinance based on the court of appeals decisions.
The letter then went on to say the city could avoid litigation costs by agreeing to repeal or stop enforcement of the code.
Staff recommends passing the ordinance.
A special meeting at 6 p.m. precedes the regular meeting at 7 p.m. Both are in the council chambers at 701 Civic Center Blvd.
