Rockville Centre officials suspend 'breed ban'

Officials of the Village of Rockville Centre suspended the recently imposed ban on pit bulls and rottweilers last night.

The move comes after outraged residents who opposed the ban protested at Village Hall last night.

Many think this 'bad dog' issue needs to be focused on bad dog owners. The mayor of the village said the ban may violate state laws.

A public hearing on the issue is now set for July 20.
