City Council Considers Dog Houses
Wednesday, 13 October 2010

October 13--  The Vidalia city council is considering a request from the Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society requiring dog houses for outside pets.

Teresa Yates from SOAPS asked the city to amend its animal control ordinance during the council's October meeting Monday night.  She said some dogs are tied or penned outside with no protection from cold and rain and that some have frozen to death as a result.  The matter was referred to the council's license committee for action.

The council made two zoning decisions.  It turned down a request to change a large residence at 205 Sunset Drive to office/residential.  An estimated 30 residents of the neighborhood showed up at the council meeting to oppose the zoning change.  In another zoning matter, the council approved changing the zoning of property on Highway 292 East across from Dennis Truck Lines from agricultural to commercial zoning.

In other actions, the council took under advisement a request to put a four-way stop sign at the corner of Church and Sixth Streets, heard a request from the Toombs County Soccer Association to lease Charles Wood Field and a a query from Mac Jordon on the potential of assisting with development of six lots on Hilldale Circle at an estimated cost to the city of $25,000.
