Title

Consider an ordinance amending Chapter 8, Code of Ordinances (2018 Edition), regarding animals. (Second Reading)

 

Body

Chapter 8, Animals, of the City Code of Ordinances governs the keeping of animals in the City of Round Rock. The proposed changes to this ordinance replace the licensing of dogs and cats in the city with a requirement to microchip those animals, as well as establish a prohibition against leaving animals in any unattended vehicle. The proposed changes provide new regulations regarding the establishment and management of feral cat colonies and the keeping of bees within the City. In addition, residents authorized by the Chief of Police to keep exotic or wild animal must maintain them in conditions specified under state law. Finally, the proposed changes revise and update the fees, rates, and charges regarding the care of animals in the city.
