Brevard County Commissioners look set to soften a restriction prohibiting sex offenders from Commission meeting premises just months after a lawsuit was filed against them.
During Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners voted to approve legislative intent and permission to advertise amending a section of the county code regarding restrictions the county imposed on people on the sex offender registry allowing them access into buildings and other property.
“This is just legislative intent,” County Attorney Abigail Jorandby said. “We will bring back a proposed draft ordinance. And this is in relation to providing for an exemption for county government buildings for the limited purposes of conducting county businesses and accessing government services.”
