Late last year, the Town Board approved amendments to Town Code to address the licensing and identification (tags) of dogs, as well as rabies vaccination requirements.
The cost of licensing an unneutered dog will be $15.00 and the cost of licensing a neutered dog will be $10.00. The State mandated that the Town collect a surcharge of $3.00 for unneutered dogs and $1.00 dollar for neutered dogs. This surcharge is built into the Town’s licensing fee. Proof of rabies vaccination is required to obtain a license and a license may not be issued for a time period extending beyond the expiration date of the dog’s rabies certificate.
