City Council will hold a workshop Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 425 N. Richardson Ave., to review a proposed ordinance that would regulate the selling and breeding of cats and dogs.
Ordinance No. [auth] 13-06 would amend the city’s Municipal Code to limit the number of dogs or cats a person or household could own and require valid permits for breeding and litters.
Without a permit, selling or giving away puppies or kittens would be prohibited.
There also would be fines for violations, such as not having a permit for multiple animals or litters or advertising animals for sale without a permit.
During a council meeting last month, the city’s animal lovers and caretakers raised concerns over the wording in the ordinance, saying it didn’t take into account other factors.
