Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has approved a new ordinance for owners of dogs that attack. According to the Detroit News, Earley signed the revised ordinance last month making the owners of dogs that attack – people or other dogs – subject to penalties of up to 90 days in jail, a fine of at least $250 and a minimum of 240 hours of community service. City Attorney Peter Bade said the ordinance was unchanged from a version that had been approved by the Flint City Council. An earlier proposal was changed however due to it’s singling out of pit bulls.┬áThe new ordinance says vicious dogs are a “serious and widespread threat” in Flint. It goes into effect on August 1st.
