Wrightstown to act on pit bulls, sexting, vaping

WRIGHTSTOWN – The Wrightstown Village Board will meet on Wednesday, April 3, at 6 p.m., to hold public hearings on two ordinance amendments that have drawn a lot of public interest.

Then, later in the meeting, the board will vote on them.

One changes the ordinance governing vicious dogs. It keeps pit bulls as vicious dogs, but does not require that they be muzzled. However, other restrictions, including mandatory insurance and physical restraints, are required. Some opponents to the ordinance changes did not want any breed singled out for special attention.

The other updates the municipal “peace and good order” ordinance to prohibit the use of vapor products by minors, to tighten the definition and penalties for truancy, and to prohibit sexting. These charges were initiated at the request of the school district. By including them in the municipal code, violators can be cited into village municipal court instead of into circuit court. Municipal court is not a “court of record” like circuit court, and so municipal court charges have less serious long-term consequences for the violator who is convicted.

The village board normally meets on Tuesdays, but the April 2 meeting was moved to April 3 because of Tuesday’s election.
