PTC might keep voice control for pets

It looks like Peachtree City’s voice control option for animal control just might stay after all.

City staff has withdrawn a recommendation to adopt a leash requirement, in part because it would have prevented a small percentage of dog bites and incidents.

The recommendation will be discussed by City Council tonight at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. Also on the agenda is a review of potential cell phone tower sites in the city. Council is expected to receive public comments on both issues.

Of the seven dog bite cases in the city last year, none of them would have been prevented had leash restrictions been in place, according to the staff memo circulated to the City Council in advance of the meeting.

Previously, Police Chief H.C. “Skip” Clark recommended the city adopt a leash law because the current voice control rule is unenforceable.
