We were almost finished writing a post about the irresponsible reporting surrounding Austin's attempts to regulate BBQ smoke we'd previously thought was dead.
As we were wrapping up, we touched base with a council member to inquire if we could use a text message that person had sent us earlier this week.
The council member informed this website that the ordinance wasn't actually dead.
Apparently, the proposed ordinance was referred to two committees. The first committee killed it back in May. The Health and Human services committee, however, will hear the proposed ordinance on Monday:
Fortunately Ellen Troxclair, who voted against the measure in April, is on the committee.
The hearing starts at 4pm.
Austin City Council Health and Human Services Committee.
Ora Houston, Chair
