Don't let your pets become a nuisance

Complaints from residents:

  • Dogs running loose that have bitten residents
  • Dogs running loose that have attacked smaller dogs being walked by their owners
  • Owners walking their dogs that leave fecal waste in other people's yards, on sidewalks, or in parks


Please be a good neighbor

  • Your dog or cat must be SECURELY confined so that it cannot escape from your property
  • Dogs must be on a leash strong enough to control the animal
  • Do not let your dog run loose in the parks
  • Be aware that if you leave your dog home alone with the windows open, your dog may become a noise problem by barking at everything and everyone that passes.
