On July 10, 2006, the Select Board adopted a new Animal Control Ordinance that includes civil enforcement of animal violations by the Judicial Bureau of the State of Vermont. That means the Animal Control Officer can give an animal owner a municipal violation complaint (like a traffic ticket) when a situation calls for this action. Copies of the new ordinance are available at Town Hall.
Laurie Earle is the Animal Control Officer for the town of Monkton. She can be reached at 802-503-7350 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a position that is appointed by the Selectboard.
