The Washington City Council considered ordinance changes as part of a special meeting last night.  The first change dealt with making the intersection of South 12th Avenue and East Taylor Street a four-way stop.  The request for this change came from citizens concerned about safety in the area.  The first reading of the ordinance change was approved and a second reading will be held at next week’s meeting.

The second ordinance change was for the drop-off lane at the Washington Junior High School and a no parking zone during school hours.  The Council approved the first reading of this change as well.

Discussion was held regarding a parking space on East 3rd Street near North 2nd Avenue.  The Council will discuss the possible elimination of a parking space near that intersection at next week’s meeting.

Much discussion was held regarding the animal protection and control ordinance.  Changes will be discussed at upcoming meetings.
