The City of Windsor, Missouri is holding a public hearing on Thursday, June 4th, at 7:30 pm, to discuss “possible changes” related to the city’s ordinance addressing the ownership of “pit bulls.” Currently, §210.110 of the Windsor city code bans the ownership of pit bulls and pit bull crosses. Although I have been unable to find a copy of the actual ordinance online, the individual seeking our assistance and support advises it is one of the strictest bans in the country.
With that in mind, please reach out to the Windsor city officials and encourage them to repeal the city’s current discriminatory ordinance and replace it with a law that not only deems dogs dangerous based on their individual behavior and actions rather than by their breed or appearance, but also respects the property rights of dog owners who live within the city.
Please send your polite and respectful letters encouraging this positive change to the Windsor officials at the e-mail address listed below. In order to ensure the appropriate officials receive your correspondence, please address your letters to the city clerk, Kim Henderson, with a polite request asking her to forward to each city council member for his or her review.
Kim Henderson, City Clerk/Manager
Windsor City Hall
110 W. Benton
Windsor, MO 65360
In addition, if you are in the area, please make every effort to attend the public hearing this Thursday (June 4) at 7:30 p.m. in the City Hall Annex in a show of support for potential positive change in the city of Windsor, Missouri.
