As reported in this week's Queque, City Attorney Michael
Bernard made good on his promise to quickly address the
City's Parade Ordinance, which was put in time out last month by U.S.
District Judge Xavier Rodriguez, who found a few of its provisions unconstitutional. Tomorrow, City
Council will peruse, discuss, and perhaps vote on a revised version of
the ordinance that, among other things, purports to create objective
guidelines for assessing parade permit fees.
But the plaintiffs who brought suit against the City over that issue
and other shortcomings say the redress falls far short of a real
solution. Representatives of the International Woman's Day March and
the San Antonio Free Speech Coalition will hold a press conference at
9am tomorrow (Thursday, March 13) at City Hall (103 Main Plaza) to talk
about why they're still headed to court this October.
