Higher Costs for Dog License

Staunton is increasing its dog licensing fees because of a state law that requires localities to do more to keep better track of dogs.

Last year, the General Assembly passed a law requiring that a list of dogs who get rabies shots be sent to counties and cities for registration purposes.

Some localities have had to hire more people to help keep up with the information.

To pay those people, the licensing fee is going from $3 to the state-allowed maximum of $10 a year.

Staunton Mayor Lacy King says the increase is badly needed to make up for the new costs.
