Leisy said she has received some com- pliments from residents of Aberdeen stat- ing how good a job the city crew has done with snow removal this year.

Once again, dogs running loose inAber- deen were brought up at the council meet- ing. The police have tried to minimize the problem, but residents are apparently not taking responsibility for their animals. Very few residents have purchased a li- cense for their animals so far this year. If a dog doesn't have a license and is picked up by the police they have no way of re- turning the dog. The city has three kennels currently for housing the dogs temporar- ily but after three days they are taken to Blackfoot to their facility. If they are not adopted quickly they are euthanized. Dalling was given the go ahead by the council to enforce the loose dog ordinance and check into having a dog catcher. See City council back page No March PTSA meeting There will be no Aberdeen PTSA meet- ing held in March. There will be one held in April. The date will be announced in a future edition of The Aberdeen Times.

All the proceeds will go to help Troop 150 in their activities for the year. City plans to get tough on loose dog problem Aberdeen is planning on putting a little more bite into the problem of loose dogs roaming the city. The city has received a number of com- plaints about dogs running loose without collars or licenses. The city council has decided they will look into hiring a dog catcher to deal with the issue. The city's dog ordinance states that all owners must purchase a license each year for each dog they own within the city lim- its. If the resident has more than two dogs, they will also need a kennel license. The running at large and without per- mission clause states an owner must have his dog on a leash not exceeding ten feet in length. Police officers will ticket resi- dents who allow their dogs to run loose within the city limits. If your dog is miss- ing, check with the police in case they have picked them up and put them in the pound. Dogs without licenses will be declared public nuisances and impounded. They will be held for 72 hours and then the dog may be sold to anyone but not the owner of the dog. An impound fee will be charged of $10 plus $4 a day after.
