It was a fairly short but heated meeting last night (Tuesday) for the Camdenton board of alderman. A heated exchange took place between the Camdenton residents whose two dogs have been the focus of the recent debate regarding the city’s pit bull ordinance and her landlord. Before the meeting was adjourned a board member followed both residents out of the building to ensure there were no further incidents. The approval of the changes to the breed specific ordinance was delayed to allow the board time to take a closer look at its contents. In other business, the first reading of a proposed increase in water and sewer rates was approved and a second reading of the bill is scheduled for February. Police chief Laura Wright reported there has been a 41% decrease in car accidents and recommended hiring Michael Schwartz, a five year St. Louis police veteran to fill the department’s vacant position.
