Members of an animal control ordinance committee met Tuesday evening to discuss a proposed ban on pit bulls, among other changes to animal control laws.

[…] Indiana will establish a weaker animal control ordinance on January 1st. According to state law, a city may not create a stricter ordinance once a state law has been put into effect.

The council and mayor must approve the ordinance before December 31st in order for it to get grandfathered in, otherwise Elkhart must abide by state law.
