March 7, 2009: "Jefferson County's new zoning ordinance and a related petition are at the center of a debate.
In December, members of Citizens for a Better Government in Jefferson County submitted more than 3,000 signatures that it had collected as part of a petition drive aimed at bringing the ordinance up for a public vote. As a result, a stay was placed on the ordinance. The previous ordinance was placed back in force until the election can take place.
