In other business to come before the city council Tuesday night:

-Preliminary approval for a new stop-sign ordinance

Ordinance 21-2006, which would place stop signs at the intersection of Maple and Franklin streets, passed unanimously on its first reading.

"I had received a call that there's nothing there," said Mayor Tom Arthur.

Arthur said the sign will be installed if the ordinance successfully passes a second reading at the next council meeting, though police officers cannot issue citations for violations of the stop sign until it is published in the newspaper.

-Brazil's Police Chief announces next round of the Operation Pull Over initiative.

Chief Mark Loudermilk announced the city would again participate in Operation Pull Over, a program targeting drunk drivers and seat-belt violators, in 2007.

Federal funding allows the department to pay officers overtime to participate in the initiative outside their normal shifts. Loudermilk said the department could receive over $5,000 toward Operation Pull Over in 2007, nearly double the amount that came through this year.
