Silver Grove to Remove Breeds from Dangerous Dog Ordinance

The Silver Grove city council is expected to remove specific breeds from its dangerous dog ordinance.

A first reading of an amendment to that ordinance was held at the meeting last Thursday.

City Attorney Steve Dasenbrock said the amendment removes the breeds American Staffordshire Terrier and Stafford Bull Terrier, making the ordinance no longer breed specific.

A first reading was also held on a time change for the monthly council meeting. Previously, meetings have been held at 7 p.m. Upon approval at the April council meeting, the time will be 6 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month.

Street improvements

Justin Verst of Viox and Viox reported that the city recently bid the sidewalk project for Four Mile Road and the construction will start midsummer.

Verst said he is working on design plans for the second phase of Route 8 sidewalk project.

Verst also provided a few design concepts of improvements to Ash Street, near Chief Saylor Park.

Improvements include raising the street up where it floods and creating additional parking. Verst, however, suggested that the project not go out to bid until next year.

“If you were to bid now, you’ll find that a lot of contractors are already booked and you’re going to end up paying about 20 percent more,” Verst said.

Council informally decided to hold off bids for improvements to, until next February.
