   St. Louis residents are speaking out about a proposed city-wide ban on sagging pants.  More than 50 people showed up to Long Middle School Tuesday night to talk about Aldermanic Bill 117.  It was the second such forum hosted by the bill's sponsor, Alderwoman Marlene Davis.

   Davis had originally proposed fines of $100-500, but after hearing from citizens, she's now looking at alternatives.

   "There needs to be some consequences, maybe community service, something like that," Davis said.  "And we have a system in place that maybe we could use, called the Neighborhood Accountability Board."  

   Davis says about 70 percent of the people attending two public forums seem to approve of the ban.  She'll now present their comments to the city's public safety department.

St. Louis city residents have a chance to weigh-in on a proposed saggy pants ban.

Alderwoman Marlene Davis is holding a pair of public meetings on the proposal. She says saggy pants can cause health problems like arthritis or sterility.

Tonight's forum is underway, but another is scheduled for Tuesday evening at Long Middle School.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis alderwoman wants people in the city to pull up their pants.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Alderwoman Marlene Davis is proposing legislation making it a violation to wear pants below the waist if it exposes skin or undergarments.

A few other municipalities in the St. Louis area have similar laws. Some civil rights groups say the laws restrict personal expression.

Davis' proposal provides for a fine of up to $500 and up to 90 days in jail for offenders.
