On April 29, two people were fined $140 each for feeding feral cats. What is the ordinance that permits prosecution and sets the fine?
Chapter 3 of the Lawrence City Code deals with the regulation of animals. Fines for feeding feral cats could be issued as violations of Article 3-106 (Animal Nuisances), 3-107 (Removal of Animal Excrement) or 3-202 (Animals Prohibited to Run at Large). The code also establishes fines. These fines are in addition to any applicable court costs or impoundment fees. Fines increase for habitual violations.
