Officials in Hendersonville,N.C. will be discussing the regulation of dog breeds and/or dangerous dogs at TONIGHT’s city council meeting.
The meeting begins at 5:45 p.m. at City Hall council chambers, 145 Fifth Avenue E. in Hendersonville.
City Manager Bowman Ferguson has issued a memorandum outlining the problems associated with breed specific legislation and pointing the council toward the ordinance in effect in Marion, N.C., which deems dogs dangerous based on their behavior…not their breed.
Members of the public wishing to speak must list their name and address on a sign-up sheet prior to the commencement of the meeting. The sheet is posted in the City Hall lobby on the afternoon of the Council meeting. A total of 15 minutes is set aside at the beginning of each meeting for speakers on a first come, first served basis according to the sign-up sheet.
If you are in the Hendersonville area, please make every effort to attend tonight’s city council meeting.
