The Garland City Council was divided Wednesday night on its acceptance of the new Urban Fowl Ordinance. The law passed with a split 3- 2 vote. Councilmen Doug Coombs and Gary Shaw voted against the final draft.

The council showed it was hard-nosed again as it was unanimous in approving February as Dating Violence Month. The group heard staggering Box Elder County statistics from New Hope Crisis Center Educator Shauna Barfuss. Of the 89 stalking injunctions issued in the county last year, 51 of the injunctions were for minors who experienced dating violence, she said. The proclamation was unanimously approved.

In other business, the council approved a new Emergency Chain of Command in the event that the mayor is unable to function is his capacity, the fire department reported applying for some grants with the library stating it has secured grants that will be very beneficial in serving community needs.
