(LAGRANGE) – LaGrange County Commissioners approved first reading of a new animal control ordinance that consolidates four existing ordinances into one.

It specifies fines and an enforcement mechanism for violations, giving sheriff’s deputies wide discretion in enforcement.

The ordinance removes a previous agriculture zone exemption and comes down on owners of barking dogs.

Resident Ralph Miller told Commissioners what it’s like living near five barking coon dogs and puppies near 200 East and 100 South. He says he can't go outside in the spring and summer because of the barking.

Commissioner Dennis Kratz opposed the section of the ordinance about barking, saying people need to be more tolerant of their neighbors.

Sheriff Jeff Campos says he feels it’s an issue the county must face now.

Commissioners voted 2-1 in favor of the ordinance. Kratz voted against waiving a second reading so it will come back before the commissioners again on March 6th.
