Animal Control

General Overview of Animal Ordinances

  • All dogs, cats, and ferrets residing within the city limits must be licensed.
  • Animals may not be allowed to run at large off the owner’s property.
  • Dogs must be leashed when off their owner’s property.
  • Droppings left by pets on public or private property must be removed.

Snow Removal

Snow and ice control consists of applying a melting agent (salt & sand mixture) to the streets during and after a snowstorm. If the snow depth exceeds 2 inches or if drifting occurs, the arterial and collector streets will be plowed. Plowing occurs between the hours of 3:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. Please keep your vehicles off public streets during these hours. Citations may be issued.

The Benefits deicing agents: In all, the Public Works Department will use about 4 tons of the sand and salt mixture each winter. This mixture helps to keep the public safe by improving driving conditions.

Additional Information: Under some conditions, ice may form in the gutters where trees and buildings provide shade. Ice buildup is removed when it begins to interfere with traffic and drainage.
