What can I do about a neighbor's barking dog?

Dogs do bark! If they bark only when someone walks by it is not a violation. However dogs that habitually bark, whine, or howl create a nuisance for the neighborhood. Barking that goes on for over six minutes is subject to an immediate $250 administrative citation when documented by the animal control officer. Call the Health and Inspections Department at 320-650-3164 if the dog is barking during business hours. The Animal Control Officer will investigate and notify the owner. Call the Police Department and request an officer be dispatched to the offending address if after hours. See attached information on
