Changes to Code Enforcement and Animal Welfare in the City
Effective Tuesday, September 2, Harrah Code Enforcement and Animal Welfare Division will be under the supervision of the Harrah Police Department. Some of the responsibilities of Code Enforcement are to ensure compliance with municipal ordinances regarding public nuisances such as tall grass/weeds, accumulations of trash and dilapidated buildings. Animal Welfare duties will include stray animals, allowing animals to run at large, and disturbances involving animals.
Officer Tim Kyle will assume the full time position of Code Enforcement/Animal Welfare officer. Normal business hours will be 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Officer Kyle can be reached at 454-1203. Calls for animal welfare after hours will be limited to animal bites, vicious animals and other emergency type calls. Calls regarding an emergency after hours should be made to 911.
Permits will still be obtained and construction inspections performed by City Hall.
It is our desire to work with the public to improve the appearance of our neighborhoods and to make it safe from aggressive animals on the loose as well as provide humane treatment for strays. We look forward to doing our part to making Harrah an attractive place for families to raise their kids and avoid public nuisances.
If you have any questions about our new division, feel free to contact Chief Gary Morgan at 454-1203.
