The City of Antioch could actually be working on something useful like how to fight crime, prevent kidnapped children from being held in backyards against their will for decades, etc. in this not so safe city. But no.
Former Pleasanton assistant city attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland, now city attorney of Antioch, has drafted a 'feeding cat prohibition' ordinance that the Antioch city council just passed. As always, once one East Bay city passes a ridiculous ordinance, the other cities do too.
What is making the rounds is that the four busy bodies on the Antioch City Council, who obviously have nothing better to do, have determined kitty cats are dangerous and just placed a ban on feeding domestic cats. A play by play of this ridiculous situation can be found here -
Please email the Antioch city council at these addresses firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org , congratulate Councilman Tony Tiscareno for being the only NO vote to this insanity.
