Granville discussing dropping ordinance on horse droppings

GRANVILLE — The Granville Village Board discussed its horse ordinance Tuesday.

Board member Randy Borio suggested that the board consider repealing its current version of the horse ordinance.

The horse ordinance, which includes a restriction that requires horses ridden in the village to have a bag attached to catch droppings, was crafted after a complaint about horse manure.

Borio said village officials could strive to find a better solution to the problem of horse manure by meeting with people more knowledgeable about the subject.

“This is not a workable ordinance,” he said.

Borio said, in his opinion, the ordinance was wrong from the beginning and that he was misinformed on the matter of the horse manure bags prior to voting on the subject.

“I regret voting for it,” he said.

Borio said the board should consider getting rid of the ordinance and starting over on the subject.

“We can’t be the only town that has this problem,” he said.

Board member Jim Pettit said the ordinance doesn’t have to be repealed — the village also can leave it alone until the board figures out how they want to change it.

The matter will be placed on the agenda for the next meeting.

* The board approved hiring attorney Christina Judd-Mennie as co-counsel for the village. She, along with village attorney Charles Helmig, will handle the village’s legal needs.
