EDEN, N.C. — Eden City Council is considering an amendment that would ban most upholstered furniture from being outside.

City leaders say they’ve received several complaints about the indoor furniture they’ve seen outdoors.

The Planning and Inspections committee is working on an amendment that prohibits sofas and other furniture meant for indoors from being used as outside seating.

If approved, the law would consider upholstered furniture that is stored outside to be a public nuisance under the city code.

Right now, the commission is evaluating the ordinance. It must get approved by the commission before it can go to the city council.

The next city council meeting is set for August 20.
