Jacksonville City Councilman Bill Gulliford says he’s willing to compromise with skateboarders on an ordinance he introduced in May.
Skaters rolled up to City Hall Tuesday afternoon to meet with him.
Gulliford introduced a skateboard-regulation bill after he said a skateboard defaced government property by taking a chunk out of the marble exterior of City Hall.
“Then I’ve had several people that have indicated they were almost hit by skateboards in the general vicinity of City Hall,” he said. “I thought, ‘We’ve got to protect our building; protect our people.’”
