Lawton City Council to consider pet microchip directive, traffic problems on Gore Boulevard |  News

Proposals to require all pets in Lawton to be microchipped and to resolve traffic flow problems on Gore Boulevard will top the agenda when City Council meets today.

The pet bill, initiated by Police Chief James Smith, asks the council to discuss establishing an ordinance requiring all dogs and cats within Lawton to be microchipped as a way to help return them to their owners when pets are lost. City code already requires all pets to be registered with the City of Lawton.
