Nelson dog ban in spotlight

Nelson council finally seems set to formally address changes to the dog ban in the downtown.

The original bylaw is 26 years old.

Tonight’s city council meeting will include a recommendation by staff to create a leashed area in the core that effectively covers Baker and Vernon Streets.

Part of the bylaw changes will also see a strict schedule of fines. For example there would be a $150 fine for someone with a dog that is not on a leash.

And owners of unlicensed dogs or those not displaying their licence tag would receive a $100 fine.
