A public hearing for proposed revisions to a nuisance ordinance drew a large crowd at the Feb. 11 Summerfield Town Council meeting.

"We don't need 'Big Brother' to tell us what we can and can't do," and "We moved to Summerfield because we wanted to be in the country ... these rules have no place here," are just some of the comments citizens gave the town council in response to proposed revisions to a public nuisance ordinance. The ordinance has been in effect since 1999, but it is difficult to enforce without further clarifications, Town Manager Scott Whitaker said.

At the conclusion of the public hearing, council voted unanimously to table the revisions until they could be further reviewed and aligned with their intent - which, they assured the citizens in attendance, was not to over-regulate the citizens of Summerfield.
