The Town of Gibbons is looking for more efficient ways to keep track of pets.
Dog licences this year are down to 332 (354 in 2016), something council isn't too sure about after door knocking during the election.
Some members of council spoke up at Wednesday's meeting saying that these are not accurate numbers and residents should want to register their pets.
"That's always been a real issue with council moving forward with trying to approve off leash dog areas or dog parks," said Gibbons councillor Darren McCann. "Dog licences and dog numbers reflect directly what we do for owners. If people don't want to license their dog, we say there's only 300 dogs in town as opposed to 1000. So we have funding changes and can't necessarily approve the stuff they want approved."
Some of the options that will be considered by council include a door-to-door campaign and stricter rules for those who get caught without pet licences.
One positive for the town of 3,159, is that dog complaints and warnings are down from 32 to 23 from last year.
