OPENING

The Meeting was called to Order by Mayor Donley and the City Clerk called the Roll; all Members of City Council were present except Councilman Euille.

(a) Donald E. West, 414 South St. Asaph Street, spoke to the current dog ordinance. He suggested that the City should stop writing warning tickets and issue a citation the first time without a leash for a $50 fine; second violation within a twelve-month period issue a $100 fine; the third fine should be $250; and the fourth time they should go to court; have more enforcement people out on the streets; initiate the hours from 6:00 p.m. to Midnight; and institute a leash law which would limit the number of footage on the leash.

Mayor Donley requested that staff examine Mr. West's recommendations over the summer, in consultation with the Animal Welfare League, and that Mr. West be involved in some of those discussions. Mayor Donley asked, as part of their consideration, that they take a look at the number of citations issued before we changed it to a civil penalty, possibly some examinations of what other jurisdictions are doing, particularly in this region, either on length of leash or on the amount of fines. Staff was requested to report back at the First Legislative Meeting in September.

It was the sense of Council that it would prefer that this project not proceed until you are able to work out issues satisfactory to the neighborhood.

Mayor Donley stated that in the coming months we are going to work, at the staff level, with Members of the Board about notification, trying to balance a somewhat slippery slope, talk about funding issues, and fair share, and possibly we would ask the Community Services Board to hold public hearings to discuss some of these issues. He also encouraged Del Ray to put forward an application to serve on the Community Services Board.

(e) (1) In the event a return that is required by this section to be filed with the director is not timely filed, the director shall, from the best information available, make an estimate of the tangible personal property or machinery and tools for which a return was required and of its fair market value, and shall assess personal property taxes against the owner of the property based on this estimated value.
