The City Council on Tuesday approved a revision to the city's animal ordinance, including setting up a new board to establish a permit procedure for issues involving dogs, cats and other animals.
Each council member will name a member to the board. The nominee would not have to be from the council person's district - just reside in the city.
The board will be set up with staggered terms of one, two and three years.
A new section of the ordinance deals with allowing animals at the outdoors portion of restaurants, City Attorney Mike McMahan said.
