Mayor Curtis Hardwick reminded City Council members of the inclusion of a copy of an ordinance used in Glasgow, KY, aimed at reducing dog barking during the hours of 9pm-8am when most people are sleeping.

Mayor Hardwick said that he has been getting a number of call on the subject, and said that law enforcement gets more specific laws to more easily take care of the issue rather than relying on general nuisance laws already in place.

The matter may be ready for an ordinance tailored specifically to Columbia at a future meeting, the Mayor said at the Monday, 6 February 2017 regular session of the council.
