FLAT CREEK -- At the February 12 Root Town Council meeting, board members discussed inviting dog kennel owners and dog breeders to an informational session aimed at providing information on meeting compliance with the town’s kennel law. 

The meeting will take place in March, with a date and time to be announced.

The council adopted a kennel law amendment on April 23, 2012 with existing kennels (defined as a facility housing, keeping and maintaining more than five adult dogs --  not to exceed 30 dogs -- over the age of four months) and dog breeding facilities given a 2-year moratorium to comply with all of the provisions of this amendment. 

Kennel owners/dog breeders in the town have until April 23 to comply.

Town council members also discussed sending letters to dog kennel owners and dog breeding facilities, including a copy of the town’s kennel law, prior to the March meeting. It was also noted that the town will conduct a dog census this year.

Supervisor Gary Kamp announced that he will be available on Monday evenings in his office if residents have issues to discuss. Kamp can also be reached by telephone at (518) 673-2139. Kamp said he is continuing the tradition that former supervisor John Thayer started during his tenure. 

Under correspondence, a letter was received from the Ames Volunteer Fire Department with a report on 2013 calls within the Fire Department’s District and in the Town of Root specifically. There were 37 emergency calls in the district and five emergency calls within the town. 

A notice was also received from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department informing town residents about an increase in rates for Court Security Services. The rate for part-time deputies is increasing to $25 per hour and $45 an hour for full-time deputies. The town board approved the continuation of Court Security Services. 

Town Justice Tom Eriksen noted that these services are only used on DA night.  

The newly elected Montgomery Co. Legislator for District 3, Roy Dimond, who represents the town of Root, will be invited to attend town council meetings by  Councilperson LuEmma Quackenbush.
