Mardi Gras complaints prompt council action

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Public indecency - and some dogs - will now be prohibited from parades and other events in Pascagoula.

The Mississippi Press reports that Mardi Gras shenanigans prompted action by the city council. The separate ordinances were drafted by City Attorney Eddie Williams.

Williams says he patterned the public indecency ordinance after looking over those in other south Mississippi cities.

During this year's Mardi Gras, he said there were complaints about some young men blasting music filled with cusswords and sexual lyrics, and acting them out atop the float in front of the crowd. He said one year several apparently inebriated parade-goers mooned the crowd.

The indecency ordinance will go into effect on May 3.
