The council voted to reconsider the ordinances which already passed in January at their June 9th meeting. The ordinances would raise the age limit to be in a bar from 19 to 21. Riedel says last night's meeting gave new council members Rachael Martin and Tim Shipley a chance to review these ordinances.
