Anti-chaining ordinance on Board of Directors agenda

Texarkana, Ark. City Hall

The third and final reading of a proposed anti-dog chain ordinance is scheduled for tonight’s Board of Directors meeting in Texarkana, Ark.

After tonight’s reading the board will be able to vote on the issue.

Violators will first be given a warning and if the don’t correct the issue after 10 days the dog may be seized.

The board will also consider a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute a contract for the Millwood Water Treatment Plant Sludge Ponds Cleaning Project, and ordinances to revise some city fees.
