City Council seeks help reviewing dog ordinance


With the Gloucester City Council considering making changes to its dog ordinance, specifically to its leash law, the council’s Ordinance and Administration Committee is seeking volunteers to serve on an ad hoc committee to review the law. The issue stemmed from a proposed amendment from Ward 5 Councilor Greg Verga for more stringent enforcement of leash law violations. Letters or e-mails of intent should state the applicant’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, along with a brief explanation of their background and reason for wanting to serve on the committee. All applications should to sent to: the City Council O&A Ad Hoc Committee, City Clerk’s Office, 9 Dale Ave., Gloucester, MA 01930, or e-mailed to City Clerk Linda Lowe at Applications will be accepted until Dec. 13. Those selected for the committee will be notified prior to Jan. 6, 2014.
