Commissioners extend deadline for dog registrations

At today's Lucas County Commissioner meeting, the board unanimously voted to extend the deadline for dog registrations from January 31, 2010 to February 26, 2010.

From the resolution:

The Lucas County Auditor’s recommends providing an extension of the dog license registration deadline that normally expires January 31st of each year, to February 26, 2010 for the year of 2010 in order to provide extra time to dog owners to purchase dog tags due to the potential economic hardship of citizens.

Ohio law gives commissioners this authority. The current licensing fee for dogs is $25 in Lucas County.

Seems reasonable enough, but why not go a bit further and extend the deadline to March 31st?

(As long as the tags still cover the entire calendar year, that is.)

here's a thought - how 'bout extending the deadline to pay all the levies the commissioners put on the ballot....

Now THAT would be a big help - to EVERYONE - and not just a small group of people....

Besides - if you can't afford to pay the $25 for the dog license by the end of January - knowing that it's due that time of the year every year - can you actually afford to keep the dog?????

The logic escapes me - because there is none - this is just a feel-good action designed to benefit a small minority of citizens.
