Council takes up sale, breeding of pets

April 9, 2013 • Local News

City Council will decide whether to adopt a revised proposed ordinance that is an effort to regulate the selling and breeding of cats and dogs during its monthly meeting Thursday, 7 p.m., at City Hall, 425 N. Richardson Ave.

During a council meeting last [auth] month, the city’s animal lovers and caretakers raised concerns over the wording in Ordinance No. 13-06, saying it didn’t take into account various factors.

The council held a workshop last week to review the ordinance and made several changes, such as eliminating the cost for a litter permit and lowering the price of permits for owning multiple animals.

There will also be two public hearings at the meeting, one regarding a zoning ordinance and another regarding an amendment to a proposed ordinance that would require a permit for the casual sale of a vehicle.

Those who would like to speak during the public hearing must sign up prior to the meeting.

The full agenda for the meeting is available online at roswell-nm.gov or by calling 624-6700.
