PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE
In response to a dog bite incident that occurred in the City of Etowah on March 9, 2016 involving an animal defined by City Ordinance as a "pit bull," the City Administration will be implementing a more stringent dog registration policy. As a reminder: all dogs being kept within the city limits of Etowah must be registered at City Hall. From this point forward, all dogs which are not assigned a specific breed by the veterinarian at the time of the rabies vaccination must be brought to City Hall to be photographed at the time of registration. As a further reminder, all dogs that are of the breeds known as pit bulls, or mixed breed pit bulls, or present the appearance and characteristics of dogs classified as pit bulls and the like, are banned in the City of Etowah by Ordinance #732, passed on October 22, 2012.
In January 2015 the Etowah City Commission voted to approve Ordinance 765, thus creating the Etowah Design Review Commission. This new Commission is tasked to enforce a set of criteria called the Design Guidelines of the Heritage District of Historic Etowah. These Guidelines regulate All construction and improvements related to the exterior surfaces of buildings located within the Heritage District as described in the Guidelines.
