Residents differ on provisions of proposed animal control ordinance

Published: Friday, January 31, 2014 at 02:50 PM.

Resident Mae Reatha Coleman said the current ordinance works fine while the new one unnecessarily addresses problems that don't exist.

"Everybody is not complaining," she said. "Dogs are not runnin' the street."

She did, however, agree with the ordinance's prohibition of keeping farm animals within the city limits.

"I don't want to live next door to chickens wakin' me up every morning," Coleman said.
