There is a motion before the city fathers in  Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania to ban dogs and other leashed animals in the commercial district of town.

City manager Steve Johnson claims that  troubles caused by dogs is an endangerment in the town. Breeds like rottweilers and pit bulls are often seen tied to city property and near storefronts. The theory being that if these were removed it would help reinvigorate the downtown business district.

Many shop owners are not happy about the animals, but are more concerned about the drugs and prostitution that plague the area. The shop owners, as a rule, don’t think banning the critters is the answer.

If the ban is denied the city still plans some incentives for the dog owners to keep them out of the business district.
