ONEONTA – One more reason to keep your dog on a leash.

At their meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 2 Common Council updated the “Animals” ordinance in the local law to make it easier to change fee schedules for impounded animals.

“Fees change from year to year,” said Mayor Gary Herzig.  “By removing the fees from the ordinance, we’re not having to change the law every time we renegotiate the impoundment fees.  The new fees can be set by Common Council resolution.”
