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.
