Dickinson City Council on Tuesday approved a new agreement with the Galveston County Health District for animal control services.
The city council approved an agreement with Officer Bruce Stewart concerning two police service dogs.
"Officer Stewart owned the dogs, which our Police Department has been using under an agreement with him," Council Member Kerry Neves reported in an email to his constituents. "It was decided for liability issues and to clarify the arrangement that the City should own them, so he sold them to the City for $1.00 for each dog. In three years, he will have the option to repurchase them for the price of $1.00 each." Report
The city council held a public hearing on the proposed Highway 3 Overlay District which has been drafted by the Planning & Zoning Commission then voted to approve the district with only Louis Decker opposed. Agenda
