The "Problem Properties' Ordinance in New Bedford moves on to the full Council after being passed by the Committee on Ordinances.

Council members voted on several changes to the much discussed ordinance, which will be re-drafted and voted on again in February.

Councillor Joseph Lopes tells WBSM News the amendments made to the ordinance last night could help it become a reality.

The full Council will be given the new draft before February's meeting, and then voted on whether to make it an official ordinance.
