Fourth Ward Alderwoman Diane Hatzenbuhler appeared before City Court Judge Howard M. Aison today and plead not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct, a violation. The charge resulted from an incident earlier in the month, when witnesses say Hatzenbuhler removed a street closure sign in front of the farmers’ market on Main Street during a heated argument with Sherri Bardascini Crouse, the market manager. Aison set a trial date of December 7, 2015 at 9am. However, Aison asked the district attorney and attorney for Hatzenbuhler to contact the court if the case could be resolved before the trial date. After the court appearance, Hatzenbuhler said she felt sure the issue could be resolved before it went to trial.
