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 or by calling 624-6700.
