Lowell, MA: BSL to be discussed TONIGHT!

UPDATE: MAY 24, 2011

An ordinance pertaining to the ownership of pit bulls was put off by the council two weeks ago, but the Public Safety Committee will provide a report on the issue at the council meeting tonight, May 24, 2011. The report is listed as number 9 on the agenda. Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m., and take place at City Hall.

This ordinance has a lot of support from city officials, so it is imperative that as many people as possible attend tonight’s meeting.

At last week’s city council meeting in Lowell, MA, the city moved one step closer to requiring that pit bulls be muzzled in public. The council directed the city solicitor to draft a muzzle ordinance similar to those in Boston and Worcester.

The council will discuss the draft ordinance at TONIGHT’s public safety subcommittee meeting, and will vote on whether to forward the ordinance to a public hearing.

Please attend this meeting if at all possible. Meetings are held at City Council Chambers, City Hall, 2nd Floor, 375 Merrimack Street, in Lowell.

In addition, please continue to write to city officials to encourage them to draft and implement a breed-neutral ordinance.
