As we ready for Town Meeting on May 16, 2023, the Town will be presenting information every day on different warrant articles.
Article 17: Citizen Petition- Humane Pet Shop Ordinance
This article is a citizen petition. The petition would create a bylaw that would ban the sale of dogs, cats, guinea pigs or rabbits at pet shops. Pet shops that violate the law would be subject to fines and the enforcement agent of this bylaw would be the Police Department and Animal Control Officer.
