Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance prohibits any owner or keeper of any animal from permitting the animal to run at large within the City.  It moves the prohibition against keeping pigs to a new section and creates a process for allowing such animals when at a special event at a park or street use event. It also establishes a bail deposit for possessing a pig within the City.
