Pottsville, PA: City admin says council will not consider BSL

Despite earlier public comments suggesting that the council was going to consider breed-specific restrictions or a ban, the Pottsville city administrator now says that BSL is not an option. Officials acknowledge that Pennsylvania state law does not permit municipalities to pass breed-specific laws.

They will be considering other ways to strengthen their dog ordinance. The council intends to discuss this issue further during their council meeting on Monday, July 11, at 6:30 PM at City Hall, 2nd Floor, 401 North Centre Street, Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Residents and locals are encouraged to attend this and subsequent meetings to ensure that any selected revisions are reasonable, humane, enforceable, and effective.
