Important Ordinances
The following ordinances are important to know.  This is a partial list.  For detailed information on all Village ordinances please contact the Village Office:

Dogs and Cats

Dog & Cat Licenses are available in the Village Office.  Each year your dogs and cats must be licensed in the Village of Coon Valley.  In order to renew your pet’s license you must also have a copy of their current rabies certificate.  The fee to renew the license of a neutered or spayed animal is $3.00 and $8.00 if they are not neutered or spayed.  Licenses must be renewed by April 1st or within 30 days of acquiring a new pet.  Puppies and kittens cannot be vaccinated until they are 5 months old.  If you do not renew your pet’s license by April 1st or when they are old enough to receive a rabies vaccination, there will be a $5.00 late fee added on to the regular fee for licensing.

The Village has a 2 dog and 2 cat limit per household.  In some circumstances a special kennel license can be obtained which will allow you to have 3 dogs and/or 3 cats.  There is a specific procedure that needs to be followed to obtain this license.  Contact the Village Office for details.


It is a Village ordinance that all dogs must be on a leash and that dog feces must be picked up and properly disposed of.  Two dog waste bag dispensers are located along the walking path in the park for your use.  Pet owners must not allow accumulation of animal waste on their own property

Fences, Hedges and Swimming Pools

Summary Information:
Swimming pools of a specified size must have a fence surrounding it which prevents public access to the pool.  
 
A fence permit must be obtained for all fences erected in the Village limits.  There is no charge for this permit, however there are restrictions on fence height, placement and material. 
 
Grass clippings and other debris from your yards cannot be blown into the streets.  There is a $150 citation if caught doing this.  This is a problem because it clogs the storm sewers. 
Leaves and Lawn clippings cannot be burned within the Village limits.    Grass, leaves, branches and any larger lawn debris must be brought to the brush and grass clipping site located on Jack Berg Lane near the sewer plant.  Remove clippings from bags. 

DO NOT put construction or landscaping material, plastic or garbage in this site.  If caught, you could be fined up to $250
