Citizens in Gordon are concerned about aggressive dogs running loose in town. Although there is a leash ordinance on the books, with no code enforcement officer to enforce it, some citizens continue to let their dogs roam free.
Local citizen, Blake Rexroat is using social media to rally others who have had problems with aggressive dogs in town to join him Monday night at the Gordon City Council meeting.
Rexroat said his kids and neighbors have been chased by a pit bull that has recently appeared in the neighborhood. He became concerned enough to take action after chasing off the dog when it was after his kids, only to have the dog come after him.

Rexroat started a petition on change.org to encourage other Gordon citizens to voice their
