More dogs registered

Clutha District Council committees met yesterday in Balclutha.

Unregistered dog numbers are down nearly  60%  in South Otago, thanks to the council’s  annual registration campaign.

At its September 6 regulatory services committee meeting, the council had recorded nearly 1200  unregistered dogs. That number was down to 500 in the latest report, presented to the committee yesterday.

In his report, council planning and regulatory manager David Campbell said property visits were almost complete.

"Last chance" letters had been issued to  unregistered dog owners, and  follow-up infringement notices  would be issued by the end of the month.

• Pre-season maintenance at Milton Swimming Pool has highlighted further work required to seal its floor.

In a report to Clutha District Council service delivery committee, council operations manager Gareth Phillips said previous repairs to the main pool floor "[had] not worked well", and would require repair if the pool were to open next month as scheduled.

It  was expected to open during the first week of November.
