PET ORDINANCE: New Rules In Pleasant Hill

The Pleasant Hill city council has approved an ordinance limiting the number of pets that can be owned by a resident.

The council voted Tuesday to put in place a revised ordinance. It would limit residents to owning four pets. The revisions mean those who already have four or more pets are grandfathered in, allowing them to keep their animals as long as they are properly licensed.

The ordinance also won’t count service dogs against the number of pets that someone owns.

The board must approve the ordinance twice more before it goes into effect.
