§ 90.24  LICENSE FEES FOR DOGS; TAGS; RECORDS; PENALTIES; CLASSIFICATION.
   (A)   The enforcement agent shall set an annual license fee which shall be paid for each dog four months of age or over that is kept, harbored or maintained within the boundaries of the town for at least 30 consecutive days of each calendar year. License fees shall become payable at the discretion of the Council. The licensing period shall not exceed the period of time for revaccination as designated by the state’s Veterinarian. License fees shall be paid within 90 days. A penalty not to exceed $4 shall be added to the license fee in the event that application is made subsequent to the date on which the dog is required to be licensed under the provisions of this subchapter. This penalty shall not be assessed against applicants who furnish adequate proof that the dog to be licensed has been in their possession less than 30 consecutive days.
   (B)   Durable dog tags shall be provided. Each dog licensed under the terms of this subchapter shall receive, at the time of licensing, such a tag on which shall be inscribed the name of the town, the number of the license and the date on which it expires. The tag shall be attached to a collar or harness which shall be worn by the dog at all times while running at large, except as otherwise provided in this subchapter. Whenever a dog tag is lost, a duplicate tag shall be issued upon application by the owner and payment of a fee to the enforcement agent.
   (C)   Any person who fails within 15 days after written notification from the enforcement agent to obtain a license for a dog required to be licensed, counterfeits or attempts to counterfeit an official dog tag, or removes such tag from any dog for the purpose of willful and malicious mischief or places a dog tag upon a dog unless the tag was issued for that particular dog is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.
