Police Jury postpones pit bull ban vote

Advocate Westside bureau
Published: Apr 28, 2010 – Page: 4B


After the discussion, Young offered his motion to ban pit bull ownership, but he was voted down when other police jurors advised him that the parish would have to hold a public hearing before the ban could take effect.

Jurors Joseph “Bozo” Bergeron Sr., Melanie Bueche, Glenn Ray Cline, Cornell Dukes, Kurt Jarreau, Allen Monk, Clifford Nelson, Willie Olinde and John “Sassy” Pourciau voted instead to postpone action on the issue and allow the Animal Control Committee more time to come up with a recommendation.

Jurors Albert “Dewey” Dukes and Young voted against setting the issue aside.
