Animal Control Laws Discussed

Hosmer said many parts of the city’s ordinance have not been updated since the late 1940’s. He said they really need to take a hard look at how to define and handle dangerous animals…

City Manager Amy Nelson suggested that the commission take some time to review the thirty plus page proposal, and hold a public hearing later…

The commission decided to hold a work session on the new ordinance before their September twenty third meeting.
