Council Votes Against Parents With Kids

wisn.com : Council Votes Against Sex Offender Ordinance.

South Milwaukee’s Common Council considered an ordinance that had parents and the police chief surprised.

The ordinance would have allowed convicted sex offenders to participate in their children’s school activities.
However, the council voted against the measure in a unanimous vote. South Milwaukee has about 30 registered sex offenders, but neither police nor the school system knows how many have kids in school. City ordinance currently forbids them from setting foot on school property.
