Dogs will have another day today when the Board of Aldermen's Public Safety Committee considers a bill by Alderwoman Lyda Krewson that would allow some local restaurant owners to admit accompanied, leashed, well-behaved dogs (with their owners) to outdoor dining areas.
Board Bill 67 has been revised by its sponsor to include more explicit health practices for dogs, owners, and restaurant staffers - and to restrict "doggy dining" in some City wards.
If the Committee concurs with the changes today, the bill will advance to the full Board of Aldermen for its consideration this week.
Here's the notice:
Meeting Type: Committee Meeting
Sponsor: Public Safety
Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Leisure Room (Room 230)
B.B.#67 - Krewson, An ordinance pertaining to food service establishments; permitting a food service establishment to allow a customer to be accompanied by a dog in the permitted outdoor dining area.
UPDATED: The bill was passed out of the Public Safety Committee this afternoon and sent to the full Board.
