NJ Animal Ordinance will Receive Final Reading at Next Town Council Meeting

The ordinance to regulate the housing and maintenance of animals within the town of North Judson was further discussed during a Monday evening town council meeting.

Council member Jane Ellen Felchuck moved to suspend the second reading and that motion was passed. Town attorney Justin Schramm explained that since they suspended the second reading, if 4 out of the 5 council members approved, they could pass the ordinance then and there.

Felchuck moved to pass the ordinance however since two members, Council President Wendy Hoppe and council member Josh Brown opposed, it was determined to still need a third reading at the next town council meeting.

Schramm said that during the third reading, as long as they receive majority, the ordinance can be passed with a vote of 3 to 2 at that point.
