The Knoxville City Council is considering a resolution to ban such shows. However, City Attorney Robert Frost Jr. says the resolution wouldn’t be enforceable.
Frost says, “If it passes, there is no new law that will pass immediately, or anything like that. The city council does not oversee the public facilities. It’s done through the administration through a private entity,”
Seven Council members are supporting the measure. Councilwoman Gwen McKenzie, in the 6th District which includes Chilhowee Park, tells our TV Partner WVLT News the point is to show the community the council stands with them and their voices are heard.
Discussion about the proposal are scheduled for the City Council Meeting on September 24th.
