South Kona councilwoman Brenda Ford wants to re-write the county code when it comes to barking dogs…
At present, a police officer responding to a call about barking dog must wait for one hour to determine if the animal is being a continued nuisance. Ford says this is an unreasonable burden for the police department.
The issue was debated at a committee meeting earlier this month.
There were two testifierson the subject, and their opinions represented both sides of the issue when it comes to man’s best friend as a potential noise-pest.
The Council Committee on Human Services, Social Services and Public Safety gave bill 27 a positive recommendation. It now goes to the full council for first reading on April 6th.
