Pet Ordinance

Animal Limits

In order to maintain the residential character of our neighborhoods, there is a limit of three dogs and cats per residence. Exceptions are made for litters of dogs or cats up to three months of age.

Leash Laws

Animals are not permitted to run at large at any time within the Village. When off of the owner’s premises, animals must be on a leash, no more than eight feet long, and under the control of the owner at all times. Pet owners are required to carry a “pooper scooper” and to immediately clean up after their pets.

Loud Noises

We ask pet owners to be considerate of their neighbors. It shall be unlawful to keep or harbor any animal which disturbs the peace by loud noises at any time of the day or night. Persons who violate this shall be fined at least $50.00 for the first offense and at least $100.00 for any subsequent offenses.

Pet Tags

As of May 1st, 2012 the Village no longer requires pet tags.
