At the November 9, 2021, Board of Aldermen meeting, the Board postponed the final reading of the proposed new animal ordinance to January 11, 2021.
The proposed animal ordinance in its entirety, including amendments made at the last meeting, can be found on the Animal Control section of the Branson Police Department’s website. It’s important to note that language which is bold and underlined has been added and language which is bracketed and stricken has been removed.
Residents are asked to contact their Aldermen, who are elected to represent the residents in their Ward, with any feedback or concerns. The Aldermen, the Ward in which they represent and their contact information can be found on the front page of the city’s website, BransonMo.Gov.
This proposed new animal code is the culmination of 18 months of research and collaboration with area animal control units, other municipalities, zoological associations, the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Municipal League.
