The cost of owning “man’s best friend” is on the way up in one Lake Area city. Officials in Camdenton are just a second reading away from amending city ordinance on the issue. That’s according to Administrator Jeff Hancock who says, while the license fees will increase across the board for all breeds, other provisions dealing with potentially dangerous dogs are being eliminated.
Under the revised ordinance, a basic license will increase from $5-$10 if the dog is fixed, from $10-$25 if it’s not fixed and up to $50 now for breeds considered potentially dangerous. The Camdenton Board of Aldermen is expected to finalize the change during the October 17th meeting.
