Complaints have been pouring in to my office about dogs running at large, molesting gardens, shrubbery and properties and this nuisance must be abated at once. Postville Ordinance No. 203 provides for the destruction of either licensed *or unlicensed dogs that molest persons or property while running at large, and since complaints have been made, this Ordinance will be carried out. Victory gardeners are to be encouraged in this time of food shortage and owners of dogs should see to it that their animals are kept confined on the owner's premises. Only six dogs have been licensed by the Town to date. Many, therefore, are apt to be liquidated unless the owners act immediately. May I also call your attention to the licensing provision of the law which states that all dogs over three months old must be licensed by March 1. A penalty attaches on fees on May 1 and dogs not licensed by July 1 shall be summarily executed, according to our Ordinances. I ask your cooperation. M. C. DEERING MAYOR OF TOWN OF POSTVILLE
