Dog ordinance proposal

The town has released the draft animal control document (PDF) in response to the tragic death of Makayla Woodard.

I haven't had a chance to read through the entire document, but Lori Bee, Waxhaw gadabout and realtor extraordinaire, has already looked through it and posted some thoughts here. There's also a healthy discussion about this on the town's Facebook page as well.

Her initial impression is not positive. A few aspects she finds particular egregious is the current limit of two dogs, the new Waxhaw fees associated with this endeavor, which would apparently be on top of the county fees; and the vague nuisance proposals.

Read the whole thing.

I'm going to try to read the whole thing and comment further, but no promises since I'm still trying to find the time to read the approved guidelines (PDF) for the proposed historic district.
