Vicious Dog Task Forces meets in Peoria
At-large Peoria City Councilwoman Beth Akeson is looking for options when it comes to vicious dog behavior. She started the community conversation with a task force meeting Monday.
She says banning certain dog breeds is NOT the intended outcome of the information gathering exercise. She says the meeting served to identify a committee of more than two dozen people, with a core steering group of about eight. She says they’ll continue to meet and look for potential ordinance changes aimed at reducing vicious dog behavior.
