5-22-06 From meeting May 8th according to Karen B There are still a lot of problems with the
ordinance--mostly existing problems, although some are issues that have been added.
The definition of dangerous animal is too broad, the definition of circus is too broad.
They have also changed the wording to require everyone wanting to sell a pet to have an
Animal Dealer's license and to forbid litters of more than 2 puppies you can't sell
more than two puppies out of a litter There was also several voted in that
are against BSL in the elections-so will keep the site updated on the elections
as they come in. - for a more detailed account contact K Brinkley


For further info contact ARC Liaison Karen

Thanks to Karen for keeping us all updated!!!

Full council meets tomorrow, 3/9/06 at 6 p.m. in 3rd Floor Chambers at
City Hall.
See attached review of dog ordinance by County Attorney below. One
problem with the review: we DO NOT want the Land Development Code
changed to allow these much stricter kennel requirements for hobby breeders.
Next Gov't Administration, Ethics, Rules & Audit Committee meeting is
3/13/06 at 4 p.m. in 3rd Floor Chambers at City Hall. Cheri Bryant Hamilton says the first meeting of the workgroup which will make
recommendations re the animal control ordinance, will be at 10 a.m. on Monday,
3/13/06, 3rd Floor Chambers, City Hall.

The Gov't
Admin. committee is supposed to keep the animal control ordinance
tabled until the workgroup reports back.
Meanwhile, another ordinance is also on the table which will create a
more permanent Advisory Board for Animal Control. We support the
Advisory board ordinance, although we would like to see more canine experts on
that board.

A Dangerous Dog ordinance is needed that is not breed-specific, but does "empower neighbors" and encourage spaying and neutering of pets which "decreases aggressiveness"

Tuesday, February 23, 2006 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
at the Newburg Gov't Center,
4810 Exeter Avenue,

Please attend if you can!
