The proposal to repeal BSL in Mount Clemens did not pass last night after the city commissioners’ vote resulted in a tie, 3-3. Commissioner Dreger, Commissioner Campbell, and Mayor Dempsey voted against repeal. (Dreger and Dempsey were previously reported to oppose repeal–see http://www.macombdaily.com/article/20120603/NEWS01/120609828/mount-clemens-eyes-changes-to-pit-bull-ordinance for more.)
The commissioners had previously voted 5-1 in favor of repealing BSL, so it was not expected to fail. At least two commissioners have said that they intend to resubmit the proposal.
For the time being, the city’s BSL remains in effect. Read the current ordinance here: http://www.cityofmountclemens.com/documents/DangerousAnimal.pdf
