Sturgis dog ordinance defeated

A proposed ordinance allowing more than two dogs in a single-family residence was defeated Tuesday by Sturgis voters.
The proposed measure, which would have allowed up to three dogs in a residence, was defeated, 245 opposed to 132 in favor.
In May, voters rejected a proposed ordinance amendment that would have lifted any limit on the number of dogs at Sturgis properties. Following that vote, several residents asked the commission to consider a new amendment that would set a three-dog limit.
The city’s current ordinance, which was essentially affirmed after Tuesday’s vote, places a limit of two dogs at any property in Sturgis.
