City Council hearing scheduled on leash law

This just in: Baltimore’s City Council has scheduled a hearing on reducing the recently imposed $1,000 fine for violating the city’s leash law.

The hearing will be held Tuesday, April 28th, at 10:00 a.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.

The $1,000 fine went into effect in February, followed by a crackdown on leash law violations at several city parks. After complaints from dog owners, a proposal to lower the fine was introduced by a group of council members last night. Under the new proposal, the fine for a first offense would be $250, a second $500, and a third $1,000.

The original fine had been $100.
