Morris passes law to curb dangerous animals

MORRIS — The city of Morris on Monday adopted an ordinance that will allow enforcement of dangerous animal violations in the city.

Effective upon adoption, the ordinance states that the city can fine violators $300-500 and sentence them up to six months in jail. The court can also access the violator with all costs incurred for impoundment or destruction of animal.

A complete copy of the ordinance is available at Morris City Hall.

In other business, the council:

• Mayor Joe Pylant opened the only bid submitted for a 35-inch television that was declared as surplus. Pat McCool submitted the bid of $200.

• heard the first reading of an ordinance that would require contractors to have a paving bond for developments in the city

• heard from Overbrook Highlands residents who are upset that their subdivision paving has not been completed (see a complete story about this on our website later and in Wednesday’s print edition).
