Ricky Burgess, Corey O'Connor, and Bruce Kraus was held for two weeks on Wednesday so Council could get an opinion from Michael Radley, the Director of Citiparks, before passing the&nbsp;measure.</p><p>Councilman Burgess called it a common sense&nbsp;regulation.</p> Fri, 01 Mar 2013 16:00:00 +0000 Noah Brode 1945 at http://wesa.fm
