(from Maine Townsman, April 2010)

The Municipal Calendar in the March edition of the Maine Townsman should have said municipal officers are no longer required to issue warrant for collection of fees for unlicensed dogs. All dogs, except those owned for law-enforcement purposes, still must be licensed annually, however. Failure to do so is punishable by a civil forfeiture of $100. Animal control officers are required to enforce the licensing requirement.
