Baldwin to hear comments on pit bull ordiance
Thursday, February 8, 2007 11:29 AM CST

BALDWIN - The public will get a chance to offer comments to the Board of Aldermen about an amendment to the town's pit bull ordinance.

The board's meeting will begin at 6:45 p.m. Thursday in Town Hall for a public hearing that allows public comment concerning an amendment to the ordinance introduced in January.

The amendment will allow for a fine of not more than $500 or by imprisonment for not more than 30 days or both. It prohibits ownership, possession, care or control of dangerous or vicious animals within the corporate limits of the town. The push for the amendment came after the town received complaints about the animals that included attacks on other animals.

If the ordinance passes Thursday, the other portions of the current ordinance will remain the same, including the classification of dangerous or vicious animals.

Following the public hearing, the board's regular meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

The board will receive the town's 2006 audit and the ordinance from the public hearing will be voted on.

An ordinance concerning bonds and fines will be introduced and bids will be received for police department surplus property.

A representative from Miller Engineers will discuss a gas line on Joseph and Kerry streets, and the board will discuss household garbage pick-up in annexed areas.

In new business, the board will vote on occupational licenses for Mr. V's Custom Wheels & Auto Electronics at 116 Collins St. and Virgil's Drive Thru at 501 B Main St.

The board also will consider requests for the VFW Post No. 10016 Buddie Poppy Campaign on April 7 and bucket tosses for G.W. Hamilton Elementary School on March 3 and the West St. Mary girls and boys track team on March 17.

What in the world are the people of Baldwin supposed to do with their dogs?? They need to get these people out of office! The government, once again, overstepping their authority. I hope they all lose their jobs. You cannot make people get rid of a family member. They don’t care about the people, it’s all about control. People do not elect officials to tear their families apart. That’s about as sorry as it gets. They have to pick on dogs! I hope they are bombarded with lawsuits.
rowell669, you are responding to a SIXTEEN year old post. I do agree with your response.
