Palm Beach County Commission to tackle pet rules today

091316-met-pet-store-02A contentious set of tough new rules for pet stores goes to a second and final vote at today’s Palm Beach County Commission meeting.

The county’s Department of Animal Care and Control says the rules are designed to reduce the flow of animals from so-called “puppy mills.”

Also on Tuesday’s agenda:

Lifeguards: will again visit pleas by county ocean rescue lifeguards that they be classified as “special risk” in order to get additional benefits.

Child Care: Will consider tough new guidelines for the county’s hundreds of child care centers.

Incentives: Expected to approve $357,000 in incentives to “Project Emblem,” now revealed as Cancer Treatment Centers of America, for its corporate headquarters in Boca Raton; and offer $89,000, as part of a state match, to “Project Cranium,” an as-yet undisclosed company wanting to more its regional headquarters to the county.

Vehicles for Hire: Set to take the second of two votes on new “reciprocity” rules for taxis, limos, and app-based rides such as Uber and Lyft, for five southeast Florida counties.
