NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WCBI) – An open meeting will be held Tuesday (11-6) in New Albany addressing the issue of “sagging” pants through law.
New Albany could potentially be the next Mississippi municipality to create a law against sagging your pants.
It is at the request of Ward 3 alderman Tommie Beasley, that the Board of Aldermen discuss the topic.
Beasley, who has mentioned his desire for the city to adopt an ordinance to ban the wearing of saggy pants in past meetings said Wednesday that it has become an increasing problem in recent years.
If New Albany passes an ordinance, it would follow in the footsteps of other Mississippi municipalities, including Kosciusko, Fulton, Columbus, Tunica, Tupelo, Ripley, Indianola, Meridian, Columbia and Saltillo, that have all adopted similar ordinances.
