A group of Chatham County employees has developed a 10-question survey on the pros and cons of licensing household pets. The employees are enrolled in the county’s Leadership Academy and will present their findings to the Board of Commissioners. County commissioners claim they are not currently considering pet licensing.

It's going to overwork someone (AC?) to enforce it.  Roll Eyes

If I recall correctly, when I lived in Durham, on that annual tax questionnaire there was a question asking if you had a dog.  There was a $5. charge for each dog.  Seems it just relied on the "honor system".  But I don't see why a dog should be taxed.  They aren't doing anything to be a draw on tax funds (such as road repair costs if you drive a car).  But I guess if you are an irresponsible pet owner and don't spay or neuter them and the resultant litters go to the dogpound, that would be an expense to the gov't.
