Leawood pit bull ban

Over the next 10 weeks, a sample of Leawood residents will have the chance to weigh in on the city's dangerous animal ordinance banning pit bulls. Above, Leawood resident Bob Brettell's pit bull Lucy. File image.

Following several weeks of discussion, a divided Leawood City Council voted Monday to approve conducting a community-wide survey that asks residents to weigh in on the city’s current dangerous animals ordinance, which bans pit bulls.

Why it matters: Leawood is the last Johnson County city currently with a pit bull ban still in place.
