Complaints about cats addressed in Canton


Fri, Jun 13th, 2014
Posted in Canton Government

The Canton City Council addressed complaints about cats at their regular meeting on June 11. Jamie and Katie Dierson, as well as other Canton residents, have complained about cats apparently belonging to a neighbor. There are several cats running around in their neighborhood that have no collars or ID tags.

Jamie Dierson and Fillmore County Sheriff Deputy Dan Dornink were present to discuss the complaints with the Council. Mr. Dierson stated that the cats are a problem. They are defecating, killing birds and leaving tracks on his property. He suggested that he would like to do something about it himself.

Councilor Carl Ernst stated that he generally handles the nuisance work for Canton and that any cats caught should be brought to him so he can keep a record. He said that the fines are progressive, meaning that the fine goes up each time the same animal is caught. Deputy Dornink also recommended that Mr. Dierson let the City handle the issue so it can be documented properly.

The Council noted that residents are allowed a total of four cats and dogs in any combination. The Dierson’s neighbor has three cats and one dog registered with the city. It was decided that Councilor Ernst and Deputy Dornink would photo document the registered animals and make sure the owner is in compliance with city’s limit of four cats and dogs. Once that is done any unidentified and unlicensed cats in town will be caught and held for 24 hours before being euthanized.

Please be aware that Canton is trying to reduce the number of stray and excess cats running around town, so it is very important to keep track of your pets and to make sure they are licensed. If you need to register a pet or if you cannot find your cat, please immediately contact the City Clerk’s office at (507) 743-5000.

Canton resident Ken Fabian was present to ask the Council for dust control on Prairie Avenue by the ball diamond to the township shed. He stated that his house is full of dust and noted that there is a lot of traffic and people drive fast on that road. City Clerk Lolly Melander got two quotes, Chucks Feed of Peterson at .75/ft and Chuck Larson of Ostrander at .55/ft. The Council approved the dust control and added that Prairie Ave. should be bladed before the dust control was applied. They stated that Chuck Larson had done this road in the past so they would contact him.
