~Welcome to Emerald Estates Water Association~
Dogs or other pets are not allowed at the park. If you see someone with a dog or pet at the park, perhaps you could inform him/her of the rule. We pay our park maintenance crew to clean up the dog waste in the park. This expense is basically paid by all homeowners, since it comes from the water revenue collected. If everyone would take responsibility for their pets, we could eliminate this expense.
It is not the responsibility of the Board to police loose dogs and negligent dog owners. However, since we have all received complaints about dogs in the neighborhood, we would again like to relay information from the Kootenai County Sheriff, Animal Control Department regarding this problem.
The following are COUNTY ORDINANCES, paraphrased of course;
•Dogs are to be restrained or confined when on your own property. This may be thru verbal commands or training to prevent them from straying off of your property. •Dogs are required to be on a leash when not on your own personal property. •Dogs are to be licensed by the county. (This may be done at the Humane Society). •A citation may be issued for excessive barking dogs, day or night.
Please, if anyone has a complaint about a dog running loose, or a dog barking excessively, call the Kootenai County Animal Control office, not a Board Member ( 24hrs/7days ) : 208-446-1300 Please be a responsible neighbor and clean up after your dog.
We would like to thank those responsible pet owners who do keep their dogs in their yard, on a leash while walking, and clean up after them.
