  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Someone told me today that it is a State Law that says  you cant leave your dog outside for more than 12 hours.  I have outside dogs,,that during summer are staked out in yard under shade trees with plenty of fresh water at all times.  I only bring them up to the porch whenever bad weather approaches,,,,,otherwise I leave them out under the trees as they seem more comfortable there.  They have a nice inusalted dog  house built into my porch ,,,,,,,,do I need to bring them up at night or is it lawful to leave them under the trees.  I let them off to run and play when I am outside,,,,,,,otherwise they are on their chains so they dont get on the road as my yard is not fenced in.  I live in a very rural area

First let me apoligize for not seeing your post before now. Second, as long as your animals have a way to get out of the weather (a shelter) with access to food and water, there is nothing illegal about having them tied up outside.
 
The animal laws are abuse and neglect, which in includes failing to maintain control of your animal.
 
I would like to say this, Thank you for keeping them under control. You do not know how many times we go to a residence and their dogs are at large coming at us with snarling teeth.

I got a guy living just up from me that is proud to have 8 dogs that run free. He has no water, electric or sewer. The puppies are showing their ribs because mama quit feeding them. From what I have been told there isn't a thing that can be done legally. I confronted him about the bigest dog barking and showing her teeth at me and he laughted and said shoot her. I guess that might have to happen but I sure don't like it.

Posting the state animal and neglect laws so everyone will be familiar with them.
 
Animal neglect and abandonment--penalties.
578.009. 1. A person is guilty of animal neglect when he has custody or ownership or both of an animal and fails to provide adequate care or adequate control, which results in substantial harm to the animal. 2. A person is guilty of abandonment when he has knowingly abandoned an animal in any place without making provisions for its adequate care. 3. Animal neglect and abandonment is a class C misdemeanor upon first conviction and for each offense, punishable by imprisonment or a fine not to exceed five hundred dollars, or both, and a class B misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment or a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars, or both upon the second and all subsequent convictions. All fines and penalties for a first conviction of animal neglect or abandonment may be waived by the court provided that the person found guilty of animal neglect or abandonment shows that adequate, permanent remedies for the neglect or abandonment have been made. Reasonable costs incurred for the care and maintenance of neglected or abandoned animals may not be waived. This section shall not apply to the provisions of section 578.007. 4. In addition to any other penalty imposed by this section, the court may order a person found guilty of animal neglect or abandonment to pay all reasonable costs and expenses necessary for: (1) The care and maintenance of neglected or abandoned animals within the person's custody or ownership; (2) The disposal of any dead or diseased animals within the person's custody or ownership; (3) The reduction of resulting organic debris affecting the immediate area of the neglect or abandonment; and (4) The avoidance or minimization of any public health risks created by the neglect or abandonment of the animals.

578.012. 1. A person is guilty of animal abuse when a person: (1) Intentionally or purposely kills an animal in any manner not allowed by or expressly exempted from the provisions of sections 578.005 to 578.023 and 273.030, RSMo; (2) Purposely or intentionally causes injury or suffering to an animal; or (3) Having ownership or custody of an animal knowingly fails to provide adequate care or adequate control. 2. Animal abuse is a class A misdemeanor, unless the defendant has previously plead guilty to or has been found guilty of animal abuse or the suffering involved in subdivision (2) of subsection 1 of this section is the result of torture or mutilation, or both, consciously inflicted while the animal was alive, in which case it is a class D felony.
 
Also define in the statues are terms and definitions. Those are as posted.
