The Murray City Council will soon consider a draft ordinance discouraging begging or panhandling in the city.

Mayor Jack Rose instructed city attorney Warren Hopkins at Thursday night’s meeting to draft the ordinance,  after examples from the cities of Paducah, Hopkinsville and Bowling Green were presented to the council.

The Murray City Council will vote tonight whether to advance an updated human rights ordinance that would protect people of different sexual orientations and gender identities.


A Murray city councilman says the group’s decision to allow Sunday alcohol sales at a golf course sends mixed signals to the community even though the issue seems dead.

Councilman Greg Taylor is one of three council members who voted against allowing Sunday sales. He says in a previous reading of the ordinance that allowed sales at the Murray Country Club, the Public Safety Committee suggested Sunday restaurant sales as well. The restaurant language did not make it to a council vote.

Taylor says while the golf course can serve alcohol on Sundays, restaurants won’t anytime soon.
