Earlier this year, Former Mayor Sal Garza announced the formation of a committee to investigate the effectiveness of the current animal control ordinances and policies in the community. The purpose of the committee was to report findings and offer suggestions for city council consideration. Initially, the study was to consist of three phases: 1) investigate the challenge of dog attacks in the community; 2) determine whether current city ordinances and policies were sufficient; and 3) provide, if current ordinances and policies were found to be insufficient, options to the town council to reform current ordinances and/or construct new ordinances.
 
This committee met for the first time on April 26 and set its goals, agenda and timeline. Public hearings were held on Wednesday, May 8 and again on Thursday, May 16, 2013, in the Council Chambers at city hall. Thereafter, the committee met multiple times during which the committee addressed issues related to Phase II and Phase III.
 
This report is a collection of possible action for city council to improve public safety within the community.
