Waterloo council delays "Ban the Box" vote

WATERLOO, Iowa - The debate over whether or not to “ban the box” in Waterloo will continue for at least another month.

Waterloo city council voted to postpone the final vote on a proposed "ban the box" ordinance last night.

Three readings and passed votes from city council are required for the ordinance to go into effect.

If the council decides on Oct. 7 that it wants to change the current language of the proposed ordinance in any way, it would need to start the entire, three-reading process over again.
