Circus? Council faces need to amend new ordinance

November 8, 2010

Assistant Big Spring City Manager Todd Darden

If Tuesday night's meeting of the Big Spring City Council seems like a circus, it won't be a coincidence, as council members are expected to consider an amendment to its newly revamped animal control ordinance that will allow circuses to perform in Big Spring.

According to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden, the previous animal control ordinance included a section addressing traveling carnivals and circuses, exempting them from many of the standard codes, including the dangerous animal provision.

Unfortunately, according to Darden, that section failed to make its way into the most recent revision of the animal control ordinance.
“It's just one of those things you don't realize has been left out until the need for a permit arises,” Darden said.

Tuesday's meeting is expected to get under way at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, located at 307 E. Fourth Street.
