The city of Woodstock tonight will hold the first reading of an amendment to its ordinance pertaining to the use or possession of firearms, explosives or weapons that would put the city in compliance with Georgia's sweeping gun law. 

The first reading will take place during the Woodstock City Council's meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. June 16 at the Chambers at City Center.

The proposed amendment would include the statement "unauthorized use or possession of a firearm, explosives or weapons in city buildings property or when conducting city business" as causes for disciplinary actions towards city employees.

The amendment is necessary to comply with a new gun law that greatly expands where license permit holders can carry firearms. That law goes into effect on July 1. 

The council will also hear the third reading of its fiscal year 2015 budget, hear from Cherokee Ford owner Vernon Krause on a title pawn location and a variance request from Starbucks for a proposed location at 9529 Highway 92.
