Nitro City Council is moving forward on plans to build an animal park, and businesses will be paying up for false fire alarms.
Council members recommended the recreation committee review a fence for the new dog park the city is building. They want the park, which will be located near Ridenour Lake, completed by the end of this year.
Council also passed an ordinance that prohibits more than six pets in a home. It allows residents to have up to three cats and up to three dogs in each household.
Council also approved a resolution that will hold businesses responsible for nuisance alarms. If a company's fire alarm goes off more that three times without an actual emergency, owners will have to pay $100 per call.
