County Board Approves Revised Dog License

At its Sept. 1, 2010 meeting, the Washtenaw County board of commissioners gave initial approval to year-round dog license renewals, with the added option of a three-year dog license. Currently, a one-year dog license is available for purchase starting Dec. 1 for the upcoming year. Dog owners have until March 1 to buy a one-year license before their previous license expires. The board also approved a new fee schedule: Licenses will cost $1 a month for a maximum of 3 years for spayed or neutered dogs, or $2 a month for unaltered dogs. A final vote on the changes is expected at the board’s Sept. 15 meeting.

This report, filed just after the board meeting adjourned, will be followed by a detailed article. [link]
