Pine Bluff Alderman Steven Mays says its an issue that needed to be addressed.
"Some citizens who want to see a difference in our teenagers and youth as far as the sagging pants issue, many of them are really just tired of it especially our older and they want something done," says Mays.
If the ordinance was approved, police will first warn the person to hike their pants up, if it happens again they could be issued a ticket.
