Highlights from August 24th’s City Council meeting
Scribner’s vicious dog ordinance still stands: no pit bulls, unless the dog owner can secure and prove they have purchased insurance that will cover any potential damages made by the animal or any other type of breed listed on the vicious dog ordinance. The ordinance is currently being revised by our city’s lawyer, to reflect that insurance is an option, if the owner would like to keep the dog in city limits.
Dogs listed on the vicious dog ordinance:
- Staffordshire Bull Terrier
- American Pit Bull Terrier
- American Staffordshire Terrier
- American Bandogge Mastiff
- Neapolitan Mastiff
- Any dog that has the appearance and predominant characteristics of any of the above-listed breeds.
The fire pit ordinance was finalized and approved, thanks to Scribner’s Fire Chief, Steven Stumpe for helping write up the rules. The goal wasn’t to ban anyone from having fires, but rather making sure we keep everyone safe, such as keeping it distanced from structures and gas lines **the new ordinance is attached below.
Thanks to the Fremont Area Community Foundation, Scribner was approved for a grant to purchase two speed signal signs that will be posted on each side of town on Highway 275. The signs will show how fast the vehicles is going and it will flash at the driver if it is over the speed limit. This is in an effort in keeping our community safe while crossing the road, either walking or pulling out in a vehicle.
