The Branson Board of Aldermen will discuss changes to the proposed animal ordinance at their regularly scheduled Study Session on Thursday, October 21, 2021, ahead of the final reading of the bill, scheduled for the regular November 9, 2021, Board of Aldermen meeting. See the full agenda of Thursday’s Study Session in the Agenda & Minutes section of our website, BransonMo.Gov

Board of Aldermen Study Sessions are held once a month on an as-needed basis for the Board to hear topics that need more clarification or discussion. While these meetings are open to the public and streamed live on the City’s website, BransonMo.Gov/Livestream, no votes are taken and no public comment is heard.

In 2018, the Branson Police Department absorbed the Animal Control responsibilities from the Taney County Health Department. At that time, the Board of Aldermen tasked the Police Department with updating the current ordinances which were severely outdated and didn’t take into account public safety, pet health, and didn’t have a streamlined pet reunification process.

Issue Timeline:

  • May 20, 2021 - First Town Hall meeting and community discussion of proposed animal ordinance.
  • May 22, 2021 - Second Town Hall meeting and community discussion of proposed animal ordinance.
  • June 9, 2021 - Third Town Hall meeting and community discussion of proposed animal ordinance
  • August 24, 2021 Board of Aldermen meeting – The Branson Board of Aldermen voted to postpone the final reading to November 9, 2021, so they can discuss amendments at the October 21, 2021 Study Session.
