Dog Control Policy
The purpose of the policy is to set out Council’s direction for dog control in the district. This policy does not require any significant amendments; Council is proposing the following updates:
1. Sentence amended to include one word - microchip. Providing for the impounding of dogs, that are found at large or in breach of any bylaw, whether or not they are wearing a collar having the proper label or disc attached or have a microchip transponder insertion.
The reason for the update is because some people are under the impression that if their dog is microchipped, they will not be impounded. That is not the case.
2. Update all maps referred to in appendices, because they are out of date.
