Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt has declared a moratorium on any more religious displays atop a City Hall overhang until the City Council can take up the issue at Tuesday’s meeting.

With a pagan Wiccan wreath knocked off the roof by a vandal early today, a Christian Nativity crèche was the lone symbol left.

Schmitt said this morning that the wreath would not be reinstalled until the City Council weighed in on draft guidelines.

“We’re trying to put guidelines in place,” Schmitt told news media.
