South Boston Council meets tonight / August 12, 2013
South Boston Town Council will meet tonight, at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers on Yancey Street to go through a relatively short agenda.

Council members are first expected to take action on a proposed amendment to the Town Code regarding dangerous dogs. However, Council will first hear public comment on the amendment changes, which clearly define what a dangerous dog is — “a canine or canine crossbreed that has bitten, attacked, or inflicted injury on a person or companion animal or killed a companion animal.”

The state code, which the local amendment copies, calls for the owner of any such animal to obtain a dangerous dog registration certificate from the local animal control officer or treasurer for a $150 fee. The certificate can be renewed annually for a fee of $85.

Also, Council will consider a recommendation from its Current Issues Committee to appoint George Burton to the town IDA. Burton worked for a number of years with Bethlehem Steel Corporation before he retired to South Boston. If nominated, he will fill the seat vacated by the death of Jim Burton.

Council members will also consider a request to carry over $374,408 in funds earmarked for the completion of the Washington-Coleman project after the project was not finished during the previous fiscal year.

Earlier Monday in Council Chambers, there will be a public meeting at 6 p.m. to give citizens an overview of a proposed Master Development Plan for downtown South Boston.
