Dorchester Residents Will Be Ticketed For Roaming Dogs
Dogs -- or at least their roaming and barking -- are currently drawing lots of complaints among Dorchester residents.
While dogs have been a top cause of unhappy neighbors since humankind left the cave, it seems that in Dorchester as of late there have been more people voicing their concerns to village officials and county law enforcement about our furry canine friends.
The village's latest code compliance newsletter cites "a large number of complaints about dogs running at large."
The newsletter also warns that the Saline County Sheriff's Department will ticket dog owners when the loose dogs have been identified.
That's right: Law enforcement will be cracking down on dogs roaming Dorchester's streets and yards, issuing tickets that will force fines.
Recently, this blog reported that all pets in Dorchester limits are to be kept in accordance with Village code. Pet licenses in Dorchester are required and are available ($2.00 each) at the Village Office.
