Currently there is no leash laws on the books in the Town of Rockville. Recently, several residents have
encountered an aggressive dog. Potential option to deal with an aggressive dog situation:
- Call County, file a report. Sheriff’s office will send Animal Control, which is currently understaffed, so
they may not come immediately, but they are required to follow up with the owner as the matter has
civil and criminal liability. Owner can be fined and/or required to appear in court. Mayor points out that
just reporting the aggressive dog will not result in having the dog euthanized.
Henry Holst comments that residents should stay alert and avoid looking an aggressive dog in the eye. Direct
eye contact is perceived as a challenge by certain dogs.
Scheduling Order: Call Buck Dukes with County. Henry Holst to follow up.
Let the record reflect Council honored the passing of Harry Townsend with 15 seconds of silence.
Mayor motioned to adjourn at 7:23. Seconded by Henry Holst.
