_______

The Belvedere City Council pumped the brakes on a proposal to surgically sterilize all of the city's female deer after a packed hearing showed city residents sharply divided on the extent of the problem and the safety of the procedure.
The council, while not ruling out the plan entirely, voted 4-1, with Marty Winter dissenting, to begin looking for a way to accurately count the number of deer in the city, independent of the project.
