The City of Dothan is working to make leash laws tougher to help protect residents.
At the City Commission meeting the issue became heated as commissioners took different stances on the issue.
Some say the new ordinance may infringe upon the rights of residents while others say it is necessary to keep residents safe.
Because this issue affects so many residents the city would like to hold a public forum to hear from residents.
A date has not yet been set for that meeting.
