It’s back to the drawing board for the Hannibal City Council’s policy regarding local bidders receiving preference when bidding on public projects.

A revised proposal allowing bidders residing within the New London zip code to receive preference along with 63401 Hannibal zip was withdrawn at last night’s council meeting, with no date set to revisit the issue.

Councilmen also gave first round approval to an ordinance restricting the locating of sexually oriented businesses away near churches and schools.
