MANLY, Iowa (AP) - The city council in the northern Iowa city of Manly has voted to keep and enforce its ban on pit bulls.
The Mason City Globe Gazette says the council made its decision Wednesday. Pit bull owners who had been sent letters about the ban have until Monday to move their dogs outside the city.
The ban was adopted in 2008 after a pit bull menaced two children in town. Council member Scott Heagel says Manly residents requested it then.
Mayor Kevin Isaacson says the ordinance has not been enforced since.
The council revisited the issue in April but decided against rescinding it. The issue resurfaced in November, after pit bull owners got the letters about removing their dogs.
