Tonganoxie moves ahead in process to lift specific dog breed ban
June 21, 2016
Tonganoxie came a step closer to lifting its specific dog breed ban. About 35 people were in attendance at Monday’s Tonganoxie City Council meeting, with many speaking in favor of lifting the specific dog breed ban on pit bulls and Rottweilers. The City Council originally established the breed ban by adopting an ordinance in 1993, and following with an amendment ordinance later that year. At the request of a citizen who had dogs that fell under the breed ban, the council again looked at the issue in 2009. After hearing arguments on both sides of the issue, the council at the time opted to not take any further action. People in dog care professions again spoke in favor of lifting the ban, as pet groomer Monica Gee and pet boarder Jenny Worden both spoke in favor of lifting the ban.
