Freeport Withdraws Auto Shop Ordinance | News

FREE PORT – The city is backtracking on a law passed in October limiting the number of vehicles that can be stored outside auto repair shops.

After mechanics at several stores expressed dissatisfaction with the ordinance at Monday’s city council meeting, members voted 3 to 1 to repeal the law with the intention of rewriting it entirely. Councilor Troy Brimage voted against the change and Mayor Brooks Bass was absent.
