Mayor asks committee to review 'vicious dogs' ordinance

From TH Online

Mayor Dave Hemmer is asking the city's Protection and Health Committee to review the ordinance relating to "vicious dogs."
Hemmer told the City Council that several city residents expressed concerns to him, and he asked the committee to review a proposed new ordinance, based on a similar ordinance in Cassville, that would ban pit bull terriers within the city limits. Lancaster also has an ordinance that bans pit bulls within the city.
The committee eventually discussed possibly going in a different direction and remove pit bulls from the list of vicious dogs in the City Code. As this proposal was not on the committee agenda as such, the issue will need to be reviewed at a different meeting. No action was taken.
