Could be the start of something big in downtown Marion.

With a title of Motor Monday, does that mean ANY motorized vehicle can come downtown? It's great to see motorcycles grouped together. How neat would it be to see a group of vipers, vettes, VW's, spiders, MG's, etc.....

I think that would be great. It would bring even more people into town, which is what I was trying to do with Motor Monday in the first place.

My vision is for there to be something special going on downtown every day of the week. Maybe hot rods one day, artists set up on the sidewalk another day, and maybe musicians playing on another day (have to change a rule for that one).

Gary has turned into a politician,now he speaks out of both sides. Keep his a$$ covered. Can we serve food?
Has this ordinence been adhered to: Sec. 15-156. Definitions.
The following words, terms and phrases, when used in this article, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning:
Block means that portion of any street lying between its intersections with other streets.
Group demonstration means any assembly together or concert of action between or among two (2) or more persons for the purpose of protesting any matter or of making known any position or promotion of such persons, or of or on behalf of any organization or class of persons, or for the purpose of attracting attention of such assembly.
Will the organizers be prosecuted according to: Sec. 15-157. Permit required.
It shall be unlawful for any person to organize, conduct or participate in any parade, picket line, or group demonstration in or upon any street, sidewalk, alley, or other public place within the city unless a permit therefor has been issued by the city in accordance with the provisions of this article.
(Code 1982,ยง 6-2022)

It seems the ordinances are only enforced when the council wants them enforced.

The Motor Monday gets by but the vendors are accessed a fee they cannot afford.

Check out the city ordinances BEFORE you break the laws.

By your thought anyone who gathers to drink coffee at the CD or eats at Bruces are gathering and should be subject to a permit.?????

The "gathering" is not a parade, picket line, or demonstration. They are not making known any position or promotion of such persons, or of or on behalf of any organization or class of persons, or for the purpose of attracting attention of such assembly.

They are a group of citizens riding to a "destination" to have a cup of coffee and/or conversation.

Get a life and quit trying to put your liberal (Obama) view on the law. You probably like the Health Care Plan because you are on Welfare.

For that matter, if 4 of my friends from work "gather" together for a birthday party at KFC, we need a permit. We are gathering "...for the purpose of attracting attention of such assembly." Because if we meet for a birthday party, everyone will know whose birthday it is (attracting attention).

Someone is ALWAYS trying to squash a good thing by having people come to downtown. Come to think of it, everyone who comes for the sidewalk sale MUST have a permit too.
