Please remember that if you have a dog that is over 5 months of age, by state law and village ordinance, it must be licensed each year. This helps ensure that the dog is properly vaccinated. As an added bonus, if our officers come upon a properly licensed dog (meaning the license is current and is attached to the collar), we will try to get the dog home, at least a couple of times, rather than taking it to Human Society “doggy jail” and resulting in the owner of having to pay "bond" to get the dog out. Licenses can be obtained at the Village Clerk's Office – COST: $7.00 neutered/spayed; $15.00 unaltered. Please take steps to get your dog licensed as we do check when we have contact for a dog related matter (and only one warning will be given for the license issue). Thank-you.
