Ordinance 15-2005 § 59-12. Howling or barking dogs. No person shall keep within the Borough any dog causing a nuisance and disturbing the peace and quiet of the neighborhood in which it shall be kept by chronically howling, barking and/or making and causing other sounds or noises.
Here's How to Safely Dispose Unwanted Medications.. To safely dispose of expired or unwanted medicine, you can either: -Visit the Madison Police Department at the Public Safety Building. They are offering a 24 Hour Secure Drug Take Back Program and will dispose medicines according to safety and environmental standards. OR -Mix the medicine with an unpalatable taste (like used coffee ground, or kitty litter), seal the mixture and then dispose of it in the household trash. Make sure all personal information on the label is scratched out and unreadable.
