FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Flagstaff officials will reconsider the city’s rule on nuisance parties after several complaints from college students and residents.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1hsL61R ) that three students and two residents spoke at Tuesday’s city council meeting and were backed by at least 20 more students in the audience.

Council members revised the rules this spring to define a nuisance party as a gathering of five or more and give police authority to levy more punishments and fines for such events.

Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity officer Gage Holcomb called the new city ordinance draconian and says it is a negative message to the town’s college students.

Mayor Jerry Nabours said Tuesday he doesn’t want to reconsider the law until there are signs it isn’t working.
