Control of Dogs Bylaw Amendment

October 07, 2020

Council is proposing an amendment to the Control of Dogs Bylaw allowing for a maximum of two dogs in residential areas with any further requiring a multi-dog permit.

The proposed fee for a multi dog permit is $30.00 which would need to be applied for every three years. If the proposed amendment was formally adopted the fee would not come in to place until 1 July 2021.
