The Waltham News Tribune recently reported that Mayor Jeanette McCarthy has proposed modifying city rules to require residents to kepe their pets in their yard and fenced in at all times.
The city’s Law Department is reviewing the request and will forward it to the City Council for future action.
Specifically, McCarthy asked the Ordinance and Rules Committee to consider expanding the definition of a vicious dog.
However, the story mentions that the mayor raised the issue because a single resident had approached her and councilors several times complaining of a dog repeatedly trespassing onto his property. No other complaints are mentioned.
With that, should the city propose such a rule based on the complaint of one person? Tell us in the comment box below.
