The city is looking to raise the fine for abandoning a dog.
The City Council's Ordinance and Rules Committee on Monday voted in favor of a number of changes to the local animal control laws. The changes including raising the fines for abandoning dogs, changing the fine structure for violations, and shortening the number the of days before a stray dog can head to adoptions.
Motorists may see an increase in parking violations fees - but not until town officials are confident that enforcement will be consistent.
The town is undergoing a review to update fees across the board. Town Administrator Tony Mazzucco is suggesting new parking violation fees of $15 to better align Adams with surrounding communities. The current parking ticket is $5 and noone is sure the last time it was updated.
