Question Re: Knox County ACA Ordinance
Hello Commissioner McKenzie,
I live in East Knoxville.
We have a lot of pets kept outdoors in my neighborhood.
Neighbors read with interest the news about the Knox County ACA sponsored ordinance that passed with support from Jeff Ownby.
I’ve tried to find the ordinance as passed but I’ve been having trouble.
This editorial has some details about the ordinance, but no link: http://www.knoxnews.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-county-ordinance-worthy-effort-to-protect-animals_99025976.
The Muni-Code Library for Knox County was last updated in March; I suspect it’ll eventually be published there: https://www.municode.com/library/tn/knox_county/codes/code_of_ordinances.
In the meantime, have been readings of the proposed ordinance, but I have been unable to find any copies of the proposed / passed ordinance.
I read online that the motion for a reading in March was deferred to April; March is the most recent date available at <http://www.knoxcounty.org/clerk/commission_minutes.php>.
Do you think you’d be able to forward an electronic copy of the ordinance as read / passed?
Note I’ve also CC’d Michael Grider with Mayor Burchett’s Office, just in case he happens to have an electronic copy.
Thanks for any help,
