provide important phone numbers and links to other sites of interest of our
local area. We hope you visit our

I would like to share some
of the areas of complaints by some of the citizens. First, we have had numerous complaints about
pets running through the neighborhoods.
The Town of Addis has an ordinance concerning dogs running at large:
Sec. 4-3. - Running at large.
No owner shall allow his animal, whether domesticated or
undomesticated, or fowl to roam, run or be at large upon any public property or
the private property of another.
Another Town Ordinance that
has been the subject of complaints is
concerning vicious or dangerous animals which requires a special permit
including a permit fee as well as insurance and certain requirements for the
living quarters for such animals:
Sec. 4-6. - Keeping dangerous animals
No dangerous animal as defined by this article in section 4-1 above shall be allowed within the Town of Addis unless a special
permit pursuant to section 4-7 is first obtained from the Town of Addis.
make sure to follow all ordinances of the Town and if you have any questions,
please contact the Town Hall.
