To protect the public and animals from the spread of rabies to animals and humans, since rabies is transmissible to humans and is fatal in all cases, the Mayor and Council adopted an ordinance requiring LICENSES for ALL dogs/cats seven months of age or older by January 31st of each year. Failure to obtain the license constitutes a violation of the ordinance. It is also required that animals so licensed wear a collar with the registration tag securely attached. Fees for licensing are as above. A delinquent licensing fee of $5.00 shall be required for any unlicensed animal after the last day of February. The payment of the delinquent licensing fee shall not relieve the person from liability for violation of the ordinance.
