Dog control bylaws under review

The Central Okanagan Regional District looking at allowing the purchase of a new dog licence online.

  • Mar. 4, 2013 7:00 p.m.

The Central Okanagan Regional District has received an update on its efforts to phase-in recommendations stemming from its 2012 dog control service review.

The report outlined key elements to be considered in developing a new service model that’s focused on responsible dog ownership while acknowledging that dog owners must be active partners with local government.

RDCO staff are working on a redrafting of the dog bylaw, and providing public opportunity for input and engagement before bringing it forward to the board later this year.

Other steps include the use of consent orders in appropriate dangerous dog cases and efforts to conveniently allow the purchase of a new dog licence online.

Currently, only licence renewal transactions can be completed on the RDCO website.
