Maximum Number of Pets

Previously the Village only permitted a maximum of 2 pets per household per ordinance (any combination of cats and/or dogs).  The Village Board recently reviewed this ordinance and compared to other area communities to see what their restrictions are for maximum number of pets.

Most other communities permitted at least 3 and sometimes more with a special permit.  The Village Board adopted a revised ordinance at their June 6th meeting which permits up to 3 pets (combination of cats/dogs totaling no more than 3) and 4 may be permitted with approval of a special permit.  Please remember all cats and dogs are required to be licensed annually and people walking their pets in the Village are required to have their animals under control at all times and must cleanup the animal’s waste.  For more information please contact the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office.
