A recommendation that Greenfield ban concealed weapons in city-owned buildings is now on its way to the Common Council.
The Legislative Committee on Monday recommended the ban unanimously, leading to a council vote on Nov. 1, the day a new state law allowing people with permits to carry concealed weapons goes into effect.
As a result of the impending law, many communities are passing bans on weapons in municipal buildings.
If the Common Council also approves a ban, signs would be posted at entrances, though there will be no metal detectors. If people are caught with weapons, they will be fined. It was not clear last night how much that fine would be.
