  • The town of Salisbury’s dog control officer will issue tickets to owners of unlicensed dogs beginning June 1. He will also issue tickets to owners of dogs found to be running loose.
    That is according to town Supervisor John Mowers who said dog licenses were due on April 1 and reminded residents a town-wide leash law is in effect.
    “The town council has received complaints about dogs running wild. The dog control officer cannot return a dog to its owner if the dog doesn’t have a license, as he has no idea of who the dog’s owner is,” said Mowers in a news release, adding the state turned over all dog management and licensing to the towns and that the state mandates licensing of dogs to control rabies and the dog population.
    “Please bring proof of rabies vaccination and spaying and neutering when licensing a dog,” he said.
    Mowers also said the town council passed a one-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.
    “This will give the planning board and the town council time to come up with regulations on hydrofracking in our town,” he said in a news release. “This was done to insure that the quality of the town’s drinking water remains the same for our town residents, but also for the residents of Dolgeville, Little Falls and Utica as they all have watersheds in the town of Salisbury.”
    There is also an opening for a planning board member in the town.
    “This is an important position in the town and will become more important in the future because that board helps to determine how the town will look in 10 to 20 years from now,” said Mowers.
    All interested persons should contact town Clerk Betty Darling by calling 429-8581 or visit the town hall Monday through Thursday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 to 4 p.m.
