POA Board approves change to leash rule fine schedule

At the recommendation of the Appeals Committee, the POA Board of Directors approved today a 28-day reading to change the fine schedule for rule GR.2.14a to reflect a written warning then to progress into a fine for additional violations for the rule pertaining to the requirement of leashed dogs.

Rule GR.2.14a requires a dog to be restrained by a leash while on common property or confined by fencing or other secured enclosure within an owner’s property. The previous fine for violating this rule was $100 for the first offense. Now, violators of this rule will receive a written warning for the first offense. A $50 fine will be issued for the second offense and a $100 fine will be issued for the third offense. Progressive fines will be issued after the third offense.

Rule GR.2.14a states that if the owner fails to confine his or her dog on their property, the owner will be liable for any and all damages caused by the unconfined dog. The owner of the animal, or the owner of the property in the case of a leased property, will be issued the citation and Community Patrol will notify local animal control authorities to have the animal contained.
