Brenham's city council passed the first reading of an ordinance limiting skate boarding and bicycling in certain areas of town. The measure is expected to go into effect in August.
The ordinance would prohibit scooting or skating in Hohlt Park, a portion of Fireman's Park, and on public property and right-of-way in and around the downtown area. It would also prohibit bicycling on sidewalks and in Alamo Alley in the downtown area.
The ordinance will be read again and is expected to be approved at the city council's August 3rd meeting.
