City of Phillips reviewing ordinance to restrict the residency of sex offenders

Phillips Chief of Police Michael Hauschild recently suggested to City of Phillips council members that they review an ordinance that the City of Park Falls currently has in effect, regulating the movements of sex offenders within city limits.

At the Phillips Committee of the Whole meeting on May 5, Hauschild provided council members with a copy of the City of Park Falls ordinance to review, stating that instituting it in Phillips could help prevent future crimes.

“It would be a good ordinance to have,” stated Hauschild. “The sex offenders that already live in the city would be grandfathered in this ordinance. If this where adopted, it would prevent any new sex offenders from residing within 1,500 feet of specific areas.”
