AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Aurora voters will decide this fall whether to allow banished pit bulls back into the city. The ballot question was approved by the city council Monday.

The Aurora Sentinel reports that ballot measures on transportation and whether to allow police captains and lieutenants to form a union were also given clearance for November ballots (http://bit.ly/1hTtGWa ).

The dog measure would ask voters if they want to lift the city's nearly decade-long ban on pit bulls.

The banned breeds include pit bull terriers, American Staffordshire terriers and Staffordshire bull terriers — all considered pit bulls. The three breeds are still allowed as service dogs.

The council has until Aug. 25 to formally adopt other potential measures to put on ballots.
