LYONS, KANSAS: is reviewing their DOG ORDINANCE. A special working and discussion group has been set up and then will be meeting again on March 5, 2007 at 6:00pm.

From the last Working Group meeting:
The working group remained split three to three on whether pit bulls and other vicious dogs will be allowed in the city. Here are a listing of other possible changes... • A maximum of five dogs/cats in a residence.
• Leash length restricted to six feet.
•Violations of the animal ordinance by an owner will no longer be expunged at the end of 12 months.
•A $25 fine will be levied for a loose dog and the fine will increase with additional infractions.
•A $30 fine will be levied for failing to register a dog.
•The city will increase the number of animal control officers.
•A grandfather clause will exempt present owners from the maximum number of animals allowed.

Now for the VERY upsetting news....
ONLY 5 PEOPLE SHOWED UP TO SPEAK AGAINST THIS PROPOSAL!!! 5 PEOPLE!!
Those within driving distance? PLEASE take the time to show your opposition to yet ANOTHER BSL passing by taking the time to show up and let your voices be heard!
