Bristol, CT: Ordinance committee may discuss BSL, Dec 21

The Ordinance Committee meets next on December 21 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 a very early stage, so we do not know exactly which breeds would be affected or any other details about the breed ban. “Pit bulls” have been mentioned by the media as a possible target, but council members have said they do not yet know what should be considered a “dangerous breed.”

There is also a city council meeting on December 13 at 7:00. The council meeting has a public participation period at the beginning of each meeting. This is another opportunity for community members to share their feelings about BSL with the council.

These early stages are the best time for the public to protest any possible BSL 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 (and/or the council meeting).
