§4155 NUISANCE:It shall be unlawful and an infraction to permit dogs, cats or other animals to engage in any conduct which would constitute a public nuisance. When Animal Control receives a complaint regarding a dog or animal which presents a physical menace to the safety or the neighborhood and, upon receiving a written complaint(s) from one or more persons residing or working in the surrounding neighborhood who complains that any dog, cat or other animal is a habitual nuisance so as to disturb the peace and quiet of the surrounding neighborhood, or by reason of its actions causes undue annoyance, or whose habitual barking, howling or other sound, cry, or habitual excessive loud and shrill noises interferes with any person of ordinary sensitivity in the reasonable and comfortable enjoyment of life and property, the City will investigate the complaint, and if such condition is found to exist, an order to conform may be issued requiring said owner or custodian of the dog, cat or other animal to abate such nuisance immediately. Failure to comply with the notice to abate such nuisance in compliance with the specific requirements contained in the notice shall be deemed a violation of this Section and subject the violator to such penalties and fines as are set forth in this Chapter, and may subject the animal to impoundment. The aggrieved animal owner may file a written appeal of such order of abatement or an impoundment of said animal in the form of a written "Notice of Appeal" with Animal Control. The appeal hearing will be conducted pursuant to procedures set forth... (Ord. 923, §2, adopted 1991)
