Jammel Cutler reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the city of Hudson is looking for a dog control officer. The Common Council is currently accepting applications for the position, which pays $7,200 per year. The term of office will run through the 2023 calendar year, beginning January 1. The dog control officer is charged with making random, twice-weekly visits to the Hudson Dog Park to confirm the canine patrons are properly licensed and is also on call 24 hours a day to round up stray, abandoned or unaccompanied dogs found on the street or other public property. The city’s dog control officer is also tasked with assisting the Hudson police, when necessary, and issuing tickets to dog owners who have failed to get a license for their dogs. Under state law, dog control officers can issue tickets and serve summonses. The deadline to apply for the dog control officer position is December 12. Interested candidates are asked to include a cover letter explaining why they want to be the dog control officer, a written proposal for dog control services for 2023, and a resume detailing relevant work and education history.
