Shadyside is a village of about 3600 people. This is the best contact information I can find for Shadyside government:
Mayors Office, 50 E 39th St, Shadyside, Ohio 43947-1303
News reports in March indicated that Shadyside cut 12 city positions due to a serious budget crisis. The cuts included dispatchers for the police department as well as some part-time police officers, and the town also planned to reduce the use of police cruisers. The “pit bull” ban will not only add to their budget woes, but it’s unclear who will enforce the law once passed–and it seems to this bystander that a better way to “protect the people of Shadyside” would be to boost their police force…
And remember–this town is located in Ohio, a state in which all “pit bulls” are already considered “vicious” dogs and in which “pit bull” owners are already required to meet certain restrictions to own a “pit bull.” The “pit bull” problems cited in this article would not exist if they were properly enforcing the current laws.
