There will be a public hearing on Oct. 22, 2018, to hear comments regarding proposed changes to the City of Athens animal ordinance. The hearing will occur during the regular Athens City Council meeting at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. 

The proposed changes address clarifying some areas such as ADA requirements, updating sections and eliminating portions no longer viable. 

The major change focuses on tethering and non-tethering. The council is considering two options: 

  • One that would allow dogs to be kept on a tether or in a pen with various requirements related to that option.
  • The second bans all tethering.
