ADVANCE, MO (KFVS) -

Advance city leaders have decided to table a new dog ordinance that have many people speaking out on both sides of the issue.

Mayor Pete Ritter says city leaders met Tuesday morning and decided to table the new dog ordinance that limits each home in city limits to two dogs.

Ritter says he has appointed a chairperson and is in the process of forming a committee of city residents who represent dog owners and those without dogs.

He says city leaders had to take a stand after several situations involving barking dogs got out of hand.

The section of the ordinance many residents have a problem with: if you already have more than two dogs you can't be grand fathered in.

He says city leaders just want to solve the problem and unruly dogs and are not trying to punish people who take care of their dogs.

Ritter says if the committee is formed and ready to go by the next council meeting on April 15, then the ordinance could be brought up for discussion.
