A Hobart, IN, resident has asked city council for a “pit bull” ban. The city’s council moved the issue to the July 18 ordinance committee meeting, which will be devoted entirely to public dialogue on the issue.
Residents and locals, please attend the meeting and respectfully participate in the community dialogue. BSL has been suggested multiple times in Hobart in the past; most recently last November, when a different resident and a councilwoman both suggested BSL. Please take this opportunity to propose breed-neutral, effective solutions to the community’s irresponsible dog owner problem. The current animal ordinances can be viewed here.
