ACTION REQUESTED:
Proposed Ordinance 20-01 – Hold a public hearing and vote on Proposed Ordinance 20-01 Amending Chapter 4 of the Roswell City Code pertaining to animals. (Best/Mathews)
BACKGROUND:
Initiated by: Mike Mathews
 
Chapter 4 of the Roswell City Code governs animals within city limits and establishes the City’s animal control department. As is currently exists, Chapter 4 is overly long and convoluted, with many redundant or confusing terms, while at the same time missing key provisions.
 
The proposed ordinance would completely replace the existing Chapter 4 in order to update, reform, simplify and improve the City’s Animal Control Ordinance. Public Safety Committee along with public participation have spent 5 months and 8.5 hours in committee rewriting this section. 
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATION
The fees have been removed from the ordinance and was considered in resolution form at the December Public Safety meeting and January at the full council meeting.
LEGAL REVIEW:
The Deputy City Attorney has been a part of the entire rewriting process.
BOARD AND COMMITTEE ACTION:
The Public Safety Committee did approve 3-0 at their November 19, 2019, meeting.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Hold a public hearing and vote at the January regular City Council Meeting on Proposed Ordinance 20-01 Amending Chapter 4 of the Roswell City Code pertaining to animals.
