New Animal Control By-law, effective June 4, 2018

The town has updated its animal control by-law. In March 2017, town staff held a public consultation meeting to discuss various topics relating to animal control, licensing, standards of care, protective care and enforcement. Staff presented a report and draft by-law to the Community Services Committee on January 22, 2018 and to Council on January 29, 2018. Council requested staff to amend the proposed by-law and to report back in March 2018. Council approved the by-law in April 2018.
