Wildlife

As a citizen it is my responsibility to...

Homeowners should be sure to cover any access points for wild animals (i.e., cap chimneys) and keep garbage inside until trash pick-up day.  Homeowners should also take care to keep pet food in a secure place inside as much as possible.  Citizens may call Animal Control & Protection or may be referred to private removal services.

It is the responsibility of the city to...

Animal Control Officers may attempt to remove some wild animals from living quarters of the home.
