You may purchase this license in person (Cash or Check ONLY) Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the cashier’s window on the first floor of City Hall:

By Mail

License requests can also be made by mail. Simply complete the application form, send it to the cashier’s office with a self-addressed stamped envelope, and the license will be mailed to you.

Any renewal for a dog license not received by March 31st will be assessed with a $5.00 late fee.

For your convenience, there is also a drop box in the lower level parking lot of City Hall. Please remember to include the following REQUIRED information:

  • Rabies vaccination certificate 
  • Proof of spay/neuter
  • SIGNED Vicious Dog Declaration Certification (If applying for Dog license, licenses will not be issued without signature)

Copies are acceptable for the rabies and spay/neuter information and will be returned. Staff members do not have time to call veterinarians; therefore, licenses will not be issued without the form.
