Voters in Aurora will get a chance to vote on a variety of issues, including a proposal to repeal the 8-year-old ban on pit bulls and other restrictive breeds in the city.
The measure was one of several the Aurora City Council passed Monday night.
Also on the ballot in November will be a measure to extend a property tax for transportation and a property tax for public safety. A fourth ballot initiative, if passed, would allow police lieutenants and captains to form a collective bargaining organization.
The pit bull ban Aurora has met controversy almost since its inception. Those who owned pit bulls fought the city before the ordinance to restrict certain breeds of dogs that include Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
Several people filed lawsuits against the city, saying the dogs were being used as service dog. Aurora later allowed those breeds. A judge later threw out the lawsuits.
City Councilwoman Renie Peterson a few months ago tried to get the council to kill the ban on its own, but without agreement, the council decided to let the voters have the final say.
