Update 4/26: Thanks to Jodi and Barb for this information. The city council has been receiving a lot of negative feedback about the proposed BSL. They will not be voting on the ordinance during the April 27 meeting. The vote is scheduled for May 11, and the proposal may no longer be breed-specific by then. I will update as I hear more.
New Jersey state law prohibits BSL.
Several citizens have started community efforts to stop the passage of the ordinance. Concerned residents in or near Garfield should get with these folks and create a collective group!
The ordinance will be voted on and may pass at the next city council meeting: April 27, May 11, 8:00 PM at City Hall.
