Following a change recently approved by the Morgan County Council, all dogs in Morgan County should be licensed every January. Previously, dog owners licensed their animals anytime, and the license lasted a year from the original licensing date.
“It is a lot easier to do it on a calendar year,” said Morgan County Sherriff Blaine Breshears. “It is a clerical nightmare right now.”
The city is already licensing animals on a calendar year basis, Breshears said. The county will allow a grace period as dog owners work to get in compliance.
