    Dillon City Council will soon try to pass an ordinance that would require all pit bulls to be registered with the city.

    The proposed ordinance, which is three pages long, also would restrict where the owners could take their dogs.

    If the ordinance is passed, those who fail to follow it would face fines.

    Councilman Randolph Gurley is spearheading the campaign to restrict pit bulls within the city limits.

    "We had an ordinance to ban pit pulls from the city limits, but we got so much controversy from that,†he said. “We have decided to go back and re-do the ordinance and take it and restrict them to the premises.â€

    But Marcus Gurley, the councilman’s nephew, is a pit bull owner and opposes the ordinance.

    “I like pit bulls mainly because of their loyal and they offer up good friendship,†Marcus Gurley said.

    Dillon Animal Control Officer Anthony Bowman said even though he hasn’t had a problem with pit bulls, he thinks the ordinance will be helpful.

    “I think it will help a lot to keep them on their property and make sure they’re in their cage and make sure they’re not getting out,†Bowman said.

    The council will address the ordinance at its next regular meeting May 12.
