City of Brownton

Dog & Cat Owners

All dogs and cats in the City of Brownton are required to have a license. Cost of license is $25.00 or $5.00 if dog or cat is spayed or neutered. Upon application for license, proof of current vaccination for rabies will be required. Citations will be issued for all unlicensed dogs and cats with a fine assessed according to the ordinance. No dogs or cats shall be allowed to run at large within the city at any time.


Grass Clippings

Please do not discharge lawn clippings from your lawn mower onto the city street when mowing the boulevard. City Ordinance prohibits this and establishes a fine for repeat violations. The lawn clippings will wash into the storm sewer, causing them to clog up. It takes considerable time and expense to clean them out.


Fixing Up Your Home?

Just a reminder that all construction in the City of Brownton is subject to the requirements of the State Building Code. The City requires building permits to make sure that construction meets minimum standards. A permit is needed for new construction and remodeling.
