- Animal Control Codes 8.36.010 Purpose of Provisions.“Human experience benefits in many ways by the companionship and service of dogs. In order to obtain such benefits, dogs must be kept responsibly by people. When people fail to keep dogs responsibly, the community may be subjected to nuisances and health problems. The purpose of the dog control ordinance codified in this chapter is to strike a balance between the rights and responsibilities of dog owners and the community at large so that the community can both enjoy the benefits of responsible dog ownership and avoid problems which arise when dogs are not properly cared for.”
- Codes pertaining to illegal dumping
