Vienna, WV: First vote to repeal BSL, Jan 27

Thanks to Jodi for this update!

Back in December, we learned that city officials in Vienna, West Virginia were considering revisions to their vicious dog ordinance to REMOVE the breed specific language from the law. The city council agreed to review a revised ordinance at a later meeting.

I have confirmed with the council clerk and the director of animal control that the ordinance has been drafted and the reference to “pit bulls” has been removed. 

The first vote on the ordinance will be taken by the city council tomorrow, Thursday, January 27, 2011. Two votes are required to make the ordinance law.

The council meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. at Vienna City Hall. If you are in the area, please try to attend.

BSL has been in place in Vienna since 1984, and a large turnout at the council meeting would be a great way to show support for the changes.
