City commission hopes to repeal law that forbids being annoying

The Grand Rapids City Commission is working to repeal outdated language in a 38-year-old section of city code. The newest change is to get rid of a law stating that “no person shall willfully annoy another person.” The repealing is expected to be decided in a hearing tomorrow. Last year, other outdated laws were removed from city code including one prohibiting people from riding horses on a sidewalk and another that allowed jail time for failing to return a library book.
