Petition to repeal pit bull ban sufficient

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

City Clerk Anita Cotter notified City Council today that a citizen-initiated petition to repeal general ordinance 6397, which established a future ban upon the possession of new pit bull dogs within the City limits, has been certified as containing sufficient signatures to be forwarded to City Council for consideration.

The number of certified signatures needed was 2,228, however, in keeping with policy, the Clerk’s office certified 2,269 signatures, before stopping the certification process. Organizers turned in the petition Oct. 31.

Now that the petition has been certified, the future ban's enactment has been suspended and City Council has 30 days to either repeal the ordinance or send the issue to the ballot for a vote of the people. It is anticipated that City Council will take public comment on the issue at the Nov. 27, 2017 meeting, with final action being taken at the Dec. 11, 2017 meeting.
