Marshfield aldermen debate firearms sign
By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Aldermen will consider removing a sign at city hall that reads “no firearms.” The Marshfield Common Council discussed the issue on Oct. 21, then tabled a decision until next month.
Marshfield resident, Todd Zieglmeier brought the idea to the council for discussion. Zieglmeier, who is a concealed carry permit holder, cannot carry at city hall without being charged with trespassing, and wants the sign removed.
Alderman Steve MacSwain was dead set against removing any signage from city buildings prohibiting guns or other weapons from those facilities.
Alderman Rebecca Spiros wants the signs taken down.
City Attorney Harold Wolfgram said the issue at hand is not a code question, but rather a signage issue.
The issue will be on the next council agenda for its meeting on Nov. 12.
