of our Dog/Cat By-Law and Community Concerns!
Spring is here, which means we
are noticing dog waste which was hidden by the snow!
The Perry Lake Trail and
our sidewalks are areas where people report many sightings of dog feces not
removed around town, especially during the spring months. It only takes a few
seconds to grab a waste bag before you walk your pets. As we pick up after our
pets, we’ll leave a lasting impression on our visitors and we’ll ensure no
unpleasant “poop” encounters.
“Noisy / Barking Dogs” Since our pets are now kept outside longer, at
times barking dog noises can extend for long periods, creating reported
disturbances in neighbourhoods.
A simple solution to decreasing barking dog
disturbances to neighbours may be to check often on your pets, train them to
not bark, bring them inside when they are barking, and bring them inside when
you are not home.
“Cat at Large” summer is almost upon us; it is important to remember to keep your cat
indoors or tied up. Neighbours are
cleaning their yards and working on the gardens, cats at large can be a
nuisance to others with digging in gardens and leaving feces behind damaging
plant life and carrying unknown disease.
The cat’s safety is the other concern.
They are hit by cars, accidentally poisoned by spilled antifreeze, or
maimed by fan blades when they crawl into warm engines on cooler nights.
“Dog/Cat Licences” All dogs/cats in Manitouwadge are required to be licenced annually
before January 31st.
Reminder…when the Township is
required to follow up with dog/cat bylaw complaints,
pet owners who have not yet licenced their pets can be fined $125 for

Snow Removal Maintenance and Winter
Have you been wondering
why it matters where a property owner or tenant deposits the snow they remove
from their property or private land?
When snow is
normally accumulated on the streets and areas in town (public land), the Township
removes the snow from these areas at a cost.
The costs incurred include the time, labour, and equipment. The Township is faced with additional costs
when homeowners deposit the snow from their private property onto or across
roadways, into ditches, on sidewalks, or other public lands by various means. When additional snow is deposited onto or
across the sidewalks and streets, it freezes and makes it difficult for the township
snow removal equipment to remove this buildup. This difficult snow and ice can end up in your
important, all homeowners ensure that any snow removal from their private property
is kept on their private property, or have it hauled away to the designated
snow dumping site. Homeowners or snow
removal persons are asked to contact the Public Works Office at 826-3227 Ext
230 for designated snow dumping areas prior to the dumping of snow.
