Howland resolution to target noisy dogs



Published: Thu, May 3, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.



HOWLAND -- Trustees will consider a resolution Monday aimed at quieting barking dogs.

A draft of the resolution says "habitual, constant or continued barking, howling or yelping" can be punished by a fine of up to $100 per day, said John Emanuel, township administrator.

"We get a lot of calls from people who say, 'We can't sleep, we live near a dog who is barking all the time,'" Emanuel said.

The township's previous anti-barking resolution was knocked down by the 11th District Court of Appeals in Warren about a year ago for being too vague, Emanuel said. A loudly barking dog that could only be heard from his owner's property could have run afoul of that law, he said.

The resolution will also prohibit keeping dogs "to cause noxious or offensive odor or unsanitary conditions," he said.

A resolution must be brought up at two public meetings before it can go into effect, Emanuel said.
