Pit Bull Ordinance on Tuesday’s City Council agenda

As regular readers have been anticipating, the city solicitor is recommending that the City Council adopt revisions to the existing dog ordinances. The revisions would remove any breed-specific aspects to the ordinance, allows for license fees to be waived for service dogs and dogs registered to those over 70 years of age, and changes the way hearings for dogs accused of being nuisances are handled.

I am grateful to the dog owners who contacted the city clerk and city solicitor about this.  I hope it passes on Tuesday night.
