City passes barking dog ordinance

Members of a small town in Scott County passed an ordinance to crack down on noisy dogs.

The city of Stamping Ground voted to add barking dogs to its noise ordinance. Before this latest ordinance, the city could impound a dog for excessive barking. The new ordinance makes it against the law for a dog to make noise for more than ten-minutes at a time, or intermittently for thirty-minutes.

The first infraction will get a warning, but second and third offenses come with $25 and $35 dollar fines.
