City Council Could Fine Violators of Pit Bull Service-Animal Rules

KNDO

The Yakima City Council meets Tuesday to talk about pit bulls, among other things.

The city bans pit bulls unless they are service animals and owners must follow strict rules. On Tuesday the council will consider imposing a $250 fine for violation of those rules.

The city in April passed an ordinance allowing the dogs to be owned as service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act, but the ordinance did not spell out how much a fine would be if owners violate the rules, which include muzzling the dogs in public.

The City Council is also expected to vote on an ordinance that makes it more expensive for utility companies to dig in public streets or sidewalks. The council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 129 N. Second St.
