Update 11/15/11: We are hearing rumors that the Ordinance Committee is postponing any discussion until next month. We encourage people to attend the meeting nevertheless, and to continue corresponding with city officials, to make sure officials are fully aware of the public’s opposition to BSL.
The Ordinance Committee meets on November 16 at 4:30 PM in City Hall Meeting Room 1. The committee may discuss Councillor David Mills’ suggestion to institute a breed ban on “dangerous breeds.” The proposal is in very early stages, so we do not know exactly which breeds would be affected or any other details about the breed ban. Presumably, the ordinance committee will work out the details over the next few months.
This is the best time for the public to protest the breed ban and to offer effective, breed-neutral alternatives—before the city council becomes highly invested in the idea. Please send your respectful correspondence to the below contact information. If you are a local, please attend the ordinance committee meeting.
City of Bristol, 111 North Main Street, Bristol, CT 06010
