Cyrus said 322 dogs are registered in the city. Since 2012, animal control has had 15 dog bite cases, 13 of which involved people. Of those 13, seven of the dogs were euthanized, while six owners paid the $1,000 and removed the dogs from the city.

City Clerk Cindy Morgan said she expected commissioners to address the issue at its Aug. 11 meeting. Any changes must be approved by commissioners with a formal vote.
