The Westminster City Council Wednesday is likely to repeal a 2011 ordinance banning registered sex offenders from entering city parks.
After a state appeals court struck down an Irvine ordinance in January, which barred sex offenders from parks without written permission from police, a number of Orange County cities have moved to repeal their bans. The state Supreme Court has declined to review the ruling, according to the Orange County Register.
Wednesday’s council meeting begins at 7 p.m. Read the full agenda here.
