Dayton to hold dog enumeration beginning June 1

The Town of Dayton is conducting a dog enumeration beginning June 1. The dog enumerator will visit all residences in the Town of Dayton and Village of South Dayton to identify the number of dogs living at each residence. It is mandatory that all dogs four months of age and older be licensed, and also have a current rabies vaccination certificate.

If a dog is currently licensed, the owner will need to show the license (signed renewal form) and rabies certificate for each dog at the residence. In the event that a dog is found to be unlicensed, the owner will be required to license that dog within ten days of receipt of notice by the enumerator. Dogs found to be unlicensed during the enumeration period shall be subject to an $8 enumeration fee in addition to the regular licensing fee.

To license a dog bring a current rabies certificate and proof of spay or neuter to the Town Clerk’s office, 9100 Route 62, South Dayton during regular business hours. If dogs are licensed prior to being visited by the enumerator, the $8 fee will not be charged. For more information, call 988-3758.

Silver Creek reminds of brush pickup regulations

Brush pickup in the village is made the first and third Monday of each month excluding November through March. The village asks brush be placed on the curb no more than 24 hours before pickup day. Brush must be cut into pieces four feet or less and piled neatly. Residents are asked to place leaves, grass and small sticks in containers, not bags or boxes. Brush that has metal, paper, garbage, building material or pet waste will not be picked up. The village thanks residents for their cooperation in this matter.
