Harrisburg City Council is considering a new law that would prevent dogs from being tethered for long periods of time.
Council members were expected to discuss the proposed law, which would also ban the outdoor tethering of dogs during certain weather conditions, during a committee meeting Wednesday night.
Councilman Brad Koplinski, who brought forth the law, said it would also limit the size and weight of dog chains.
Koplinski said the proposed law would carry up to a $350 fine, and city officials could remove a dog from a property if violations continue.
The bill could come up for a vote before the entire council on Tuesday, April 23.
