Animal control says citations up in 1999

Since implementing a zero-tolerance policy toward dogs-at-large, Truckee’s Animal Control Department issued 138 citations during the first three months of 1999.

The department issued 27 fewer citations during the entire previous year.

Court Services Supervisor Helen Miller of the Truckee branch of the Nevada County Superior Court said that few citations in Truckee have gone unpaid.

Failure to pay the incurred fine or appear in court results in referral to a collection agency and an additional assessment fee of $250.

Brenda Lee, Animal Control office assistant, said that by the end of April, the Animal Control Department will send a letter to all owners of licensed dogs in Truckee explaining the current ordinance, the zero-tolerance policy and fines incurred for non-compliance.
