St. Francis - Mayor Al Richards' request to stop any more residents from erecting "ugly fences" will be considered.

Richards wants to tighten city codes to prohibit what he views as unsightly fences that are visible from the street. He's not a fan, for example, of six-foot-tall wooden fences.

Richards said he has raised the issue before and the council hasn't taken action. But he said Wednesday that the Common Council decided Tuesday to refer his request to one of its committees.
