Beckley's Mayor drops plans to ban street hoops

Posted:
BECKLEY (WVVA) -

A surprise announcement Monday afternoon by Beckley Mayor Bill O'Brien on a proposed ordinance that would have banned street hoops in Beckley.

The mayor says he's dropping the ordinance from the common council's agenda.

The decision comes amid fierce opposition to the ordinance from the community.

The mayor says he has no intention of considering a revised version of the ordinance at council.

Councilman Mike Atterson was among those championing the ordinance after several complaints from residents on vine street in Beckley.
