Copper Theft Ordinance Update

According to Captain Ricky Laviolette of the 7th District, the Scrap Metal Ordinance will be revisited on Thursday, October 4, 2007 at 10:00 am, at the City Council Chambers. This is the ordinance that we referenced about two weeks ago.

It was presented by Councilperson Willard-Lewis and would restrict who could sell scrap copper to licensed electricians, plumbers and gasfitters. If passed, we believe that the ordinance would be a tremendous
aid in abating copper theft and burglaries in the district
.

Any who are interested in the ordinance may wish to attend.
Thanks,

Captain Kirk Bouyelas
Second District Commander
New Orleans Police Department

I believe the scrap dealers showed up in force the last time this was
introduced. –Jerry Speir
