Broken Bow City Pound
We would like to clarify the rules of our pound.
If we have a stray in the pound for more than a couple days and
the owner comes in to pick it up; there is a $25.00 pound fee (to offset the cost of food and the upkeep of the pound). If
the dog is in our pound for 5 days and no one has come forward to claim it then it is our policy to try and find a new family
for the dog. If after an additional 5 days we cannot find a home for the dog then our policy is that we have the animal euthanized. We DO NOT WANT to do this and work very hard to find homes for
all of our strays. We have made great contacts with other shelters and have wonderful volunteers willing to foster
and transport and we are very thankful for their support! It is also the policy of the Broken Bow Dog Pound that we
do not take strays from outside of the city limits of Broken Bow because our space is limited.
When it comes to weeds and grass the
City of Broken Bow’s ordinance defines a Nuisance as lack of maintenance of property not allowing growth of eight
(8) inches or more in height of weeds, grasses or worthless vegetation. The first contact by law enforcement will
be a red card may be placed on the property and means that immediate action is required or a Notice to Abate which will
be posted on the property and personally served or mailed to owner. The owner has 5 days to appeal to the City
of Broken Bow. If the property is not mowed and trimmed after receiving the Notice to Abate, the City of Broken Bow
will mow and clean up the yard. A minimum charge of $100.00 will be assessed against the property.
There is an ordinance that pertains to unlicensed or junk vehicles in a yard.
This will also result in your receiving a Notice to Abate with the same result as was previously stated above, the
only difference being that you have 15 days to license and or remove the vehicle.
There is also an ordinance about junk or trash in your yard. Trash, litter, rags, accumulations
of barrels, boxes, crates, packing crates, mattresses, bedding, packing hay, straw or other packing material, lumber not neatly
piled, scrap iron, tin, or other metal not neatly piled, old automobiles or parts thereof, or any other waste materials when
any of the articles or materials create a condition in which flies or rats may breed or multiply, or which may be a fire danger,
or which are so unsightly as to depreciate property values in the vicinity.

From the desk of Chief Scott...
Don't pass stopped vehicles at pedestrian crossing lights
When you are driving and see a vehicle stopped at the flashing yellow lights at a school crossing, STOP your vehicle
and do not pass the vehicle in front of you. Some drivers are passing vehicles that are stopped for flashing yellow lights, putting students in danger. If a vehicle is stopped at the yellow flashing
lights, assume that there are children crossing the street. Yellow lights are activated during hours when children are likely to be going to and from school. If
you see the lights flashing, be prepared to stop. If
someone is already stopped in front of you, stop your vehicle behind them. Passing
a vehicle that is stopped at a pedestrian crossing is a very dangerous situation and can result in a citation for the driver
who is passing.
It is more than Police Work!
