EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Evansville City Council have postponed the vote on an ordinance that would require approval for new projects within a certain boundary at Wesselman Park from the city council.
Tonight the Evansville City Council was set to vote on an ordinance that could have put a pause on the highly debated Pickleball Courts set to go up at Wesselman Park.
During the meeting, the council instead took a vote to table the matter until a meeting in April. That vote was 7 yeses to 2 no’s. At that April meeting, the council says that there will be a presentation by the Park’s Board at that time.
Officials say if the ordinance is passed, it could put a pause on the proposed pickleball courts at the park.
