SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - Saginaw officials are considering changing an ordinance to make it harder for stolen scrap metal to be sold in the city.

The Saginaw News (https://bit.ly/1HJHjYe ) reports the ordinance would add stricter rules for scrap dealers. They would have to keep certain records of purchases, not pay anyone in cash and not buy scrap metal they suspect has been stolen.

Changes would also include a requirement that scrap sellers present a valid form of identification.

The Saginaw City Council voted 8-0 in favor of changes Monday, and the measure is set to be considered for final approval at the council’s next meeting July 20. It would take effect July 30.
