At the January 11, 2021 Hamlin Town Board meeting, the Town Board adopted accruing late fees of $5.00 each month for dog licenses that are not renewed within 30 days of their annual renewal date.
The purpose of the late fees is to encourage timely renewals. Dog Licensing helps ensure that dogs are vaccinated against rabies. The Town of Hamlin considers rabies to be a serious public health issue. The late fee on dog licenses is another tool to ensure that dogs are vaccinated and that vaccinations are kept current.
