NORWICH – It’s now legal to buy contraceptives and to go to the movie house after midnight in the City of Norwich.
The Common Council Tuesday voted 4-0 Tuesday to accept revisions that remove outdated laws and archaic language from the city’s general codes.
Obsolete regulations and wording made keeping the codes – last revised in 1967 – up to date and in compliance with superseding laws cumbersome, said Deputy City Clerk Brian Drake.
“A lot of this is housekeeping stuff. It’s been 42 years,” said Drake. “This gives us a base to work from ... And we’ll always be current, which is great.”
