Animal Ordinance - Nuisance (04/11/2024)

 § 91.05 NUISANCES.

   (A)   The owner or custodian of any dog shall prevent such animal from committing within the city any act which constitutes a nuisance. It is a nuisance for any dog to run at large, for a dog to habitually or frequently bark, cry, or howl, to frequent schoolgrounds, parks, or public places or to chase vehicles. No person having custody or control of a dog shall permit the animal to damage any lawn, garden, or other property, public or private, or to urinate or defecate on private property without the express consent of the owner or possessor of the property. It shall be the duty of each person having custody or control of a dog to remove any feces left by such animal on any sidewalk, gutter, street, park land or other public or private property, and to dispose of such feces in a sanitary manner. Failure of the owner or custodian of a dog to prevent the dog from committing such a nuisance is a violation of this subchapter.
   (B)   It shall be unlawful for any person to keep or harbor a dog which habitually barks or cries. Habitual barking shall be defined as barking for repeated intervals of at least five minutes with less than one minute of interruption. The barking must also be audible off of the owner’s or caretaker’s premises.
