Dangerous Dogs to Again Be Topic of City Council Meeting

An issue which generated a public outcry to change city ordinances concerning dangerous dogs will be at the top of Monday night’s agenda for the Elgin City Council.
City Attorney Ron Temple has had just short of a month to draft proposals to change City Ordinance #628 Prohibiting Dangerous Dog Breeds within the city limits and Licensing Requirements. Those drafts will be presented to council members for discussion and possible action at the meeting.
The issue of dangerous dogs stems from a Memorial Day attack where three pitbulls being kept in a camper at the park got free and killed two pet dogs on the property of Brian and Kathy Dinslage.
The pit bulls, belonging to Samuel Fackler and Donna Payne, who were living in the RV park at the time of the incident, were taken away and later euthanized by court order.
In addition, discussion and possible action will be taken on two related issues —kennel licensing and allowing dogs in Elgin City Park.
Other items on Monday night’s agenda are:
• Meis’ Subdivision annexation
• ADA Policy Statement requested by NDOR
• Creation of a sewer backup guideline policy
• Discussion/action on Leonard Orlowski’s concerns regarding propane tanks at the Elgin City Park campground; and ownership of Plantation Street
• Certificate as to Title to Project Site
• Building Permits
• Library Agreement with Antelope County
Also, a number of reports will be given near the end of the meeting.
The meeting, at City Hall, will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
