Harmony approves license for The Dog Pad


Fri, Nov 15th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Government

The kennel license application from Paula Fisher was approved at the Harmony City Council meeting on November 12. Fisher will have a dog kennel at the same location as the Harmony Greenhouse and Floral. The Dog Pad, LLC, will be a doggy day care, a place for people to bring their dogs to be boarded for the day or for more long term. There will be a fenced-in area for the dogs to be outside as well.

The council also approved the kennel ordinance fee of $50 per year.

The current animal kennel ordinance was updated as well. Previously, the ordinance did not allow for more than four dogs, and there were no kennels allowed in city limits.

The new ordinance defined the word “kennel” and “commercial kennel.” It states that a person must have a license to have a kennel for cats and/or dogs, and the kennel can only be used for the purpose of selling, boarding, breeding, training, or grooming.

Fisher said she will have a temporary fenced-in area for the winter until a new fence can be installed in the spring.

Utility assessments

A public hearing was held at the beginning of the meeting to discuss utility assessments. City Administrator Jerome Illg explained there is one property owner with an outstanding utility bill that would normally be assessed to property taxes.

Illg explained this property owner is a landlord, and the bill was owed by the tenant. The tenant moved out in February, paid up their utility bill, and their utility deposit was refunded. The city later found out from the landlord that the tenants were responsible for the property through March according to their lease.

Illg said they no longer take the tenants’ word for it when this happens, and always check with the landlord, although he doesn’t feel the city should have to do that. There was some discussion about what is the responsibility of the landlords, and some discussion about raising the utility deposit in case things like this happen.

Council member Lynn Mensink asked if an increase in the deposit would make it cost-prohibitive for people to move to Harmony. She noted that many people live paycheck to paycheck. She wondered if this was a common enough occurrence that it would justify increasing the deposit.

City Attorney Richard Nethercut said it is not the city’s obligation to get involved in what is between the landlord and the t .....
