A few residents attended the Hamlet Town Council meeting this week to complain about the number of loose dogs in town.
The complaints are an extension from a February meeting where two residents reported their concerns about dogs that appear to be vicious. They don’t feel safe around their homes with the dogs hanging around the neighborhoods.
Town Marshal Clint Norem previously said the officers write tickets and it often has little effect. At the February meeting, Council President Dave Kesvormas asked Town Attorney Martin Bedrock to start sending letters to those who aren’t paying their fines.
It was previously mentioned that the council would want to meet with the dogs’ owners to discuss the issue in a special meeting.
