Springfield's pit bull rescue policy under review tonight

Springfield,MO -- A plan to let animal rescue groups try to adopt pit bulls from the city pound will get another hearing at tonight's Springfield City Council meeting.

Councilwoman Mary Collette had asked city staff to develop a pit bull rescue policy, but she said their proposal was too restrictive.

It would have required animal rescue groups to have $500,000 in insurance to deal with the pit bulls.

It also would require rescued pit bulls to be adopted at least 100 miles away from the city.

The council tonight may opt to consider a substitute resolution from Collette that removes both the insurance provision and the distance requirement.

Currently, unregistered pit bulls that end up in the city pound are euthanized.

Collette said she hoped this latest issue over pit bulls might help reopen a discussion about the city's existing pit bull law.

It requires pit bull owners to register their dogs, spay and neuter them, microchip them and keep them in a secure enclosure, muzzle them while in public and post a "pit bull dog" sign at each entrance of the owner's property.

"I hope we revisit it," Collette said. "I want to ask council to look at an all-breeds policy, not just a pit bull policy."

In other business, the council will consider creating a new application policy for nonprofit groups that want to receive funding from the city.

The city currently has no formal policy detailing who gets how much.

City funding for nonprofits could become a significant issue in the upcoming city budget talks.

City Manager Greg Burris has outlined a worst-case budget scenario where he would recommend dropping all city contributions to nonprofit groups, saving $587,177.

It will be up to the City Council to decide whether to continue that funding.

Other items on tonight's council agenda include:

- A vote to seek a $1.4 million federal grant that would pay the salary and benefits for 25 new police officers.

The grant, if the city qualifies for it, could be renewed for two more years.

- A vote on changes to zoning notice rules.
