No person shall bring into, keep, maintain or suffer or permit the keeping or maintaining of horses, donkeys, cattle, sheep, swine, goats, rabbits, poultry, pigeons or any other animal, except common household pets, within the Village of North Collins.
No person shall keep, house or harbor more than two dogs over four months old within the limits of the Village without a special permit from the Village Board of Trustees.
Upon written request, such special permit may be granted for a period of up to one year, unless it shall appear after a public hearing that the keeping of such animals in question is objectionable or offensive by reason of noise, smell or other cause. Such special permit shall be revocable at any time by the Board of Trustees upon notice to the permit holder and after holding a public hearing thereon. Any existing use shall be grandfathered for a period of not more than two years from the date of enactment of this law, unless a special permit is granted pursuant to this section.
Any person committing an offense against any provision of this article shall be guilty of a violation punishable by a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment. The continuation of an offense against the provisions of this article shall constitute, for each day the offense is continued, a separate and distinct offense hereunder.
