IONIA, Mich. — […] The ordinance went through first reading by a 5-3 vote, with council members John Milewski, Gordon Kelley and Brenda Cowling Cronk opposing. Council member Matt Johnson was not present at the meeting.[…]
The proposed ordinance would put a ban on pit bull terriers, but allow for current, legally licensed pit bulls to be grandfathered in. Also in the ordinance, it states that after the ordinance is in affect, pit bull owners would have 30 days to license their pet for it to be grandfathered in. […]
Council members asked for more information with the statistics of pit bulls, and will schedule a public hearing on the proposed ordinance at the next meeting, Jan. 3.
