W. T. Eckert reports in The Daily Mail dog owners in New Baltimore have two choices: Either license your pooch or pay the price. The price to license a dog was increased Mon., Feb. 11, by the town board after hearing public comment. The new late fee was increased to $75. The fee was originally $5, $2 less than the licensing fee if your pet is spayed and neutered and $10 less if they are not. On several occasions, New Baltimore has been notified by the New York State Department of Health that someone in town has been bitten by an unlicensed dog, Town Supervisor Susan O’Rorke said during last month's work meeting. “Not only is it not licensed but we don’t know if the dog has had its rabies shot, vaccinations either,” O’Rorke said. “So our goal is to get the dogs, that are required by the state, to get licensed.” Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
