Stewart puts final stamp on pet ordinance

“What do you want to do so we can put this to bed for a change?” Council Member Carol Altrichter said as the council approached the line item to approve a new pet ordinance. Now, once and for all, the Stewart City Council resolved the issue after months of deliberation. The new ordinance approved by the council on Tuesday, Feb. 11, states:
“(A) The number of dogs or cats in any combination allowable on a single property is three. (B) An owner of more than three dogs or cats in any combination must obtain a variance from the city council for the allowance of each animal over the allowable three… The maximum amount of grandfathered or varianced dogs or cats is two.”
The council also added a fee of $25 to anybody who wants to obtain a variance for extra pets. It also allowed “grandfathered” pets, which means pet owners who already received a license/variance over the amount authorized by the new ordinance won’t have to pay a fee.
