Public discussion on concealed carry delayed

Sept. 21. An informal agreement among Cornelius commissioners has apparently been reached which will permit those with concealed carry permits to possess firearms on town property. A public discussion on the proposal originally scheduled for Sept. 21 will instead be held Monday Oct. 5 during the regularly scheduled Town Board meeting.

The issue initially arose in June as the commissioners were looking to clarify existing codes and ordinances.

At that time, Commissioner Jim Duke expressed some concern about allowing weapons in certain town properties while Commissioners Mike Miltich and Tricia Sisson supported doing so. Sources indicate that Duke now agrees with Miltich and Sisson on allowing the public with permits to carry concealed weapons on town property.
