AURORA — Aurora city council is still split on a decision whether or not to repeal the city's ban on pit bulls, so the group voted to put the discussion off for another month.

Councilwoman Barb Cleland is considered the tie breaker, but she said she can't make a decision until a related vicious dog ordinance is re-examined and presented to council along with the question to repeal.

"I asked that we wait until they both come together, because there are misconceptions about that ordinance in the public," Cleland said.

She said residents have quoted stipulations in the vicious dog definition that aren't there, and she wants to hear the actual language and clarify anything outdated or questionable at a public safety meeting May 6.
