Barking Dog Ordinance

Original post made by SleeplessinMV, Waverly Park, on Aug 29, 2008

Has this city ordinance regarding barking dogs actually help anyone stop a barking dog problem in their neighborhood?

5.59b
Unlawful to allow an animal to howl, bark, or meow continuously for 10 minutes, or intermittently for 30 minutes.

What do you do when you hear dogs barking continously for an entire night or weekend? Do the police actually enforce this ordinance? How does it work - do the dog owners get a warning, and eventually a fine? What is they put the dogs in when the police come and it just becomes a "he said/she said" situation?
