No Decision Made on Sex Offender Ordinance 

The Bangor City Council has decided they need to get some answers from the state before voting on an ordinance restricting where sex offenders can live. The ordinance calls for 750-foot buffers around schools, parks, playgrounds and other areas frequented by children.Sex offenders not living within the restricted zones would not have to move. The restrictions would only apply to offenders who have committed felonies against victims under the age of fourteen. Council Chair Richard Stone tells TV5 there is a lot of discussion from the state looking at reclassifying some of the offenses, and the council wants to table the discussion until they know what those changes are going to be.
