PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe announces his new plan to update the discharge firearms ordinance.

The city of Phenix City currently has an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of firearms. Since 1926 the ordinance was intended to prohibit any discharge of guns in Phenix City and police jurisdiction.

Now Mayor Lowe is looking to update the ordinance where it will consider permitting the discharge of guns within Phenix City. Residents will be permitted to shoot in areas where it is safe to hunt.

The updated ordinance will also consider permitting indoor gun ranges if properly permitted and zoned.
