Ocean City Councilwoman Margaret Pillas posed the riddle to her colleagues at a budget meeting, and now the council is set to reconsider just what it means to have a domesticated animal in the resort.
At a recent budget hearing, Pillas wondered aloud whether such a beast would pass the litmus test of being allowed out and about on a leash, and she questioned the town’s current ordinances that define a pet.
Pillas hedged on specifics, but fellow council member Mary Knight sniffed out the details.
“I think I know what this is about,” Knight said. “I’ll say it –I call him Iguana Man.”
According to the story, Iguana Man seems to like to walk his Iguana along the Ocean City Boardwalk and it causes some to be discomfited.
