CAPE CORAL, FL - Some dog lovers are rejoicing. On Wednesday the city's planning and zoning board approved a plan to allow dogs to visit outdoor restaurants with their owners. The measure brings the city up to speed with a statewide law already in effect. According to the ordinance drafted by Cape Coral city councilman, Chris Chulakes-Leetz, restaurants that want to invite pets to dine with their owners will have to pay a permitting fee and be inspected. But not everyone is on board with the idea. One restaurant owner says she will not be getting a permit. She says it is a sanitary and safety issue.
