LISBON — Residents of Columbiana County will pay an additional $2 per license for their dogs starting December 1.
County commissioners voted Wednesday to raise the cost of a dog license to $12 per dog for a one-year registration and $36 for a three-year registration. A permanent registration will also go from $100 to $120.
The cost of a kennel license does not increase. There will be $50 left for up to five beacons with an additional cost of $1 per beacon after five.
The license period for 2022 begins on December 1 and runs until January 31, with license applications for renewals after January 31 subject to a late penalty. Licenses can be renewed online, but include a $2.50 online convenience fee.
The last increase in dog licenses in the county took effect in 2014, after commissioners voted in August 2013 to increase licenses from $8 to $10 for the coming year.
