What would a reasonable person do when faced with an ethical dilemma?

That seemed to be the question on the minds of the public and city council at the Aug. 15 meeting when council members approved an ordinance prohibiting acceptance of gifts by a 5-0 vote with one abstention. Council member Olga Negron abstained and Council member Shawn Martell was absent.

However, some changes may be proposed before the ordinance comes up for second reading at the Sept. 5 meeting. Council member Michael Colon said amendments are possible, given the input from members of the public.
