The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

We do not have this information electronically.

The cost is .50 a page plus 1/2 hour of labor ($14.00) as of right now it there are 10 pages. You will need to provide a self addressed stamped envelope(with the sufficient amount of postage) to return this to you or you can pick it up at our office.

We just started licensing dogs for 2014. We have only licensed 185 dogs.

By the beginning of February we should have about 2000 dogs.

It may make sense to request this in February at that point the document should be roughly 100 pages.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
