Letter to the editor: Ontario residents need to register their dogs

By DAVE RYNES | Ontario Police Chief

Open letter to Ontario residents/dog owners:

Spring is upon us again; this is a gentle reminder to register your dogs. I have been in your neighborhood, dropping off notices and contacting you if you are on the list as a dog owner. Registering that animal is required by village ordinance. This also ensures that your animal has its proper rabies vaccination.  Here are a few ordinances for review. As always, be respectful of your neighbors.

 Unlicensed Dog Ordinance 117-3 

Any dog older than 5 months old residing in the village needs to be licensed annually.  You can obtain a license from the Ontario Village Clerk’s office from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Monday through Thursday. The cost of the license is $3 if the animal is spayed or neutered and $8 if intact. 

Animals/Dogs-at-Large Ordinance 117-6 

A dog/animal is considered to be running at large if the animal is off the owner’s property and not leashed, or under the owner’s/person’s physical control of the animal.  It is also the owner’s responsibility the animal not interfere with the passing public or neighbors. 

Animals Feces Ordinance 117-9 

The owner/person in charge of any dog/animal shall not permit solid fecal matter of such animal to deposit feces on any street, alley or other public or private property unless such manner is immediately removed/cleaned up.

    Mighty Wilton has struck out. I always thought Wilton was run well and had a lot to offer, was a town sought after as a place to live, was a town where people got along. But then every town has issues that all can’t seem to agree on — right now it’s the swimming pool in Wilton.

    Don’t be fooled: The government that bans abortion can also force you to have an abortion if they decide the country is becoming overpopulated.
