The purpose of a Dog Control Bylaw is to enhance our communities by respecting the rights of our neighbours. Dog Control Bylaws ensure that dogs are not causing bad feelings or problems. Aggressive dogs, barking dogs, or roaming dogs need to be addressed so that everyone can feel safe and happy in our neighbourhoods.
The Dog Regulation and Impounding Bylaw No. 5388 amended by Bylaw No. 5603 explains in detail the Dog Regulation and Impounding Bylaw. The Bylaw includes definitions, schedules of fees and detailed descriptions of the role of the Dog Control Officer, and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.
The CSRD Ticket Information Utilization Bylaw No. 5296 amended by Bylaw No. 5602 and Bylaw No. 5605 describes in detail the Municipal Ticketing Information System and includes a detailed Fee Schedule (Schedule 2 in Bylaw No. 5605).
|Proposed Dog Control in the Community of Falkland|
The CSRD held an informative meeting at the Falkland Community Hall on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 to hear from the community on their interest in the provision of dog control service for Falkland and area. This meeting was very well attended and the majority of persons opposed dog control for the Falkland Community. As a result, the CSRD will not proceed with this initiative any further.
