BSL ALERT: Earlham, Iowa

The Earlham, Iowa city council passed the first reading of an ordinance targeting “pit bulls” at last night’s city council meeting. The issue will be voted on by the council on Monday, August 13, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. It is very likely that the second and third readings could be waived at the upcoming meeting, so it is extremely important that we act on this alert and offer the council educational materials and information on the flaws and problems associated with breed specific ordinances.

According to the city clerk, if you would like to address the council at the meeting on August 13, please give her a call, and she will add you to the agenda. In addition, she advised there is time allotted for public comment at the beginning of the meeting. Council meetings take place at Earlham City Hall, Council Chambers, 140 South Chestnut Avenue.

Please send your polite, respectful and informative opposition to breed specific legislation to the Earlham city officials listed below. E-mail contact information is not available for the individual council members, however, you may forward your correspondence to the city clerk, Linette Crouch, with a polite request to forward to each council member.
