Council holds special meeting: Dog owners reminded of city ordinances

The Gothenburg City Council met for a special meeting on Thursday, Oct. 27, with the only item on the agenda being a public hearing on an appeal of an animal citation. The public hearing was set for, and held, during the regular council meeting Oct. 18, but because the dog owner was not present at that meeting the hearing was rescheduled.

“This is not fun for any of us in the room,” said Janssen.
