            Councilman Mire has requested that the Council Administrator research various City Ordinances that regulate the ownership of vicious dogs.  This request was made due to an incident involving a vicious dog attacking a neighbor in his backyard.

            Due to this incident and the increasing number of incidents around the State involving vicious dogs, Councilman Mire would like for the City Council to consider adopting legislation that would regulate the ownership of any dog that is found to be vicious in nature.

            Councilman Winston introduced an ordinance to amend and re-enact Section 5-23 of the Thibodaux City Code of Ordinances so as to provide regulations regarding the housing of vicious dogs.  The public hearing on this ordinance will be held at the February 17, 2004 City Council meeting.

            The Project Engineer has advised the Council Administrator that it is necessary for the City Council to consider the adoption of a resolution re-approving Change Order No. 1 for the FEMA Arms Street Drainage Improvement Project.

            The execution of this change order is required as a result of an error made in the original change order that was approved in order to adjust contract quantities as a result of actual work performed on the project.  The proposed change order will decrease the contract price by $1,152.64 thereby n=making the final contract price $273,778.36.

            On motion of Councilman Dee Richard, seconded by Councilman Winston, the Council voted to adopt a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute Change Order No. 1 for the FEMA Arms Street Drainage Improvement Project.  Upon roll call the vote was as follows:
