June O'Hara also thanked everyone for their help and support.
Health Department Director Lou Franklin said since January first, 44 dog bites have been reported in the city.
She says 13 of those involved pit bulls or pit mixes.
Eight of the dogs who bit people were out running loose.
O'Hara was viciously attacked by two pit bulls last Wednesday ...
Animal control has euthanized both.
O'Hara has attended city council meetings religiously for many years.
Mayor Glenn Barham presented her with a card from the council.
Five members of the council said during the meeting that they want city staff to review the leash law and figure out what can be done to strengthen it.
Pit Bull Attack Victim
"I was one street away from City View High School. What if it had been very early in the morning and the kids were walking or riding their bikes to school?? If I thought I was going to die, a child would never have survived. Is it going to take someone being killed to get something done?"
Lou Franklin said Texas law prohibits cities from developing laws that are breed - specific ... so the city could not, for instance, ban all pit bulls.
