Canine Limitation - Tom reported that the County has done a 1st review and want to limit the number of dogs to 4 per acre except for breeders and 4 per additional acre.  Janet suggested fosterers and rescuers be allowed more.  Ranching is exempt.  Hearing is tentatively scheduled for June 22.  It was duly moved, seconded, and passed to approve with the addition of rescue and foster workers.
