Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25- MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2013 21 Dogs Continued from page 16 the county's costs. Councilman Sam Wilson, R-Georgetown, said he didn't un- derstand why the county would impose regulations when the problem could be corrected in other ways. Wilson, who owns a small manufactured home park, said as park owner he deals directly with issues such as ex- cessive noise. "I tell them to take care of their dog or move," he said, add- ing community's homeowners' associations should deal with barking dogs. "To be honest, I have more trouble with boom boxes riding by," he said. Councilwoman Joan Deav- er, D-Rehoboth Beach, voted against deferring action on the ordinance, saying it was another delay to enacting the ordinance. Kent SPCA has received 60 complaints Council had extended its pub- lic hearing to get information from Major Brian Whipple, an animal control officer with the Kent County SPCA, the orga- nization that would enforce the county's excessive dog barking ordinance. Whipple said his organization had received 60 complaints from Sussex residents about barking dogs since the start of 2013. With no enforcement regulations on the books, he said there is little or nothing officers can do. Kent County SPCA provides barking-dog enforcement in Delaware's two other coun- ties. Whipple said after three complaints against one dog, his agency issues a Violation notice to the dog's owner. He said they try to resolve the issue after the first and second complaints. Most cases are resolved before going to court, he said. In New Castle County, 35 of 279 complaints have ended up in court, and all have resulted in convictions and fines ranging from $25 to $100. Whipple said neighbors' eyewitness accounts carry as much weight in court as eyewitness accounts from SPCA officers. In New Castle County, excessive barking is de- fined as barking for more than 10 minutes. "We ask residents to keep a log, and some even use cell- phone recordings," Whipple said. "We've had no repeat of- fenders." Residents plead for ordinance passage In addition, council members got an earful from residents who have problems with bark- ing dogs. Carol Barford, who lives in Stable Farms near Rehoboth Beach, pleaded with council to pass the ordinance. She said she has tried, with no success, since 2008 to deai with a barking dog in an adjoining community. She said there are three dogs that are left outside all day when the owners go to work. "But it's one dog that we have complaints about," she said. She presented council with a audiotape she recorded two weeks ago with the dog barking for 33 minutes. "We can't go out- side into the backyard; we can't sit out on the deck," she said. She said she has spoken to the dog's owner several times and even recorded the dog barking on the owner's phone answering machine. Mary LoB Ritson and Carol Dadds, who live in Plantations East near Lewes, told similar stories. They said two dogs are left alone most days in a sec- ond-floor condominium in their building with the windows and porch open. They bark inces- santly until the owners return home, they said. 't 7 a.m. they start barking," Ritson said. "It's a quality of life issue." "It's not fair to the animals either," Dadds said. Dean Kostas, who lives in Plantations near Lewes, said a nearby kennel's barking dogs have plagued his community for Mon., Oct. 21st - Sun., Nov. 3rd Journey SAS Shoes Roamer SAS Comfort Shoes 18798 Coastal Hwy., Unit 3, Rehoboth Beach, DE 302-644-3660 Hours: Mon.-Thurs. 10-8, Fri. & Sat. 10-9, Sun. 11-6 years. He's spoken to the ken- nel owners with no resolution. Speaking for his neighbors, he said, "We are asking for a third party to come in and give us relief. Unfortunately, we need laws because of those who could care less." He said staff of SeaScape Property Management - the Plantations' management com- pany - told him they receive complaints from people through- out the area about barking dogs left out in yards and porches while their owners are away. Rehoboth makes appointments The Rehoboth Beach commis- sioners unanimously approved five appointments to various board and commissions at their Oct. 18 meeting.-Bunky Markert, David Mellen and Paul Hub- bard were all appointed to the Planning Commission, while Priscilla Smith was reappointed to the Parks and Shade Tree Commission. Doug Popham was reappointed to the Board of Ad- justment, and Mayor Sam Cooper said he would make one more appointment to the board. All the appointed officers will serve three-year terms. Rehoboth committee meeting cancelled The Rehoboth Beach Parks and Shade Tree Commission has cancelled its Monday, Oct. 28 meeting due to a lack of agenda items.
