Wellsville, Kansas to consider repeal of pit bull ordinance

The city of Wellsville, Kansas has an ordinance that bans “pit bull terriers and Staffordshire terriers” within the city limits. At the May 28, 2014 city council meeting, resident Lisa Roberts, along with several supporters, presented information to city officials about the problems associated with breed specific laws, and asked the council to consider repealing the current ordinance. Council members advised they would take the matter under advisement and schedule a meeting to discuss the issue further.

A public meeting to discuss Wellsville’s vicious dog ordinance has been rescheduled for 6:00 p.m. on June 30, 2014 at City Hall, 411 Main St., Wellsville, Kansas.

The council originally set the public meeting for July 1, 2014. However, according to the city clerk, that date was changed to June 30 due to a scheduling conflict. Unfortunately, in publishing notice of the upcoming meeting, the Ottawa Herald advised the new date was July 30. The paper was asked to publish the article again with the correct meeting date, however, it appears that change was not made. So residents please take note of the correct meeting date.

Residents of Wellsville: Your city leaders have scheduled a public meeting because they want to hear from YOU!

Please reach out to city officials and politely and respectfully encourage them to move forward with repealing the ordinance banning pit bull-type dogs. Let them know that breed specific laws are ineffective, discriminate against and penalize responsible dog owners, and do not enhance the safety or welfare of the residents in communities in which it exists. Urge your city officials to enact an ordinance that deems dogs dangerous according to their individual actions and behaviors and holds dog owners accountable for the actions of their dogs – regardless of breed.

Finally, please show your support for eliminating the breed specific language in the city’s current ordinance by attending the public meeting on Monday, June 30, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.
