Council Considers New Animal Control Bylaw 03-18

At the January 29, 2018 Regular Meeting of Council, first reading was given to the Animal Control Bylaw 03-18, which will update the existing Animal Control Bylaw 18-11.

The following are among the key distinguishing features of the proposed new bylaw:

  1. The format of the Bylaw has been updated to be structurally consistent with newer Town of Kindersley bylaws, as well as Provincial legislation.
  2. Definition and reference to 'Dangerous Animals' is consistent with that of Provincial legislation.
  3. Pet licence fees have been simplified and, specifically for dogs, are no longer based on weight of the animal. A separate fee is now referenced for animals that have a micro chip
  4. A late penalty fee is added, similar to the Traffic Bylaw.
