The Fayette County Commissioners have authorized the County Auditor to receive dog license fees for fiscal year 2022.
During the Commissioners' meeting on Monday, September 20th, fees for dog licenses in Fayette County for 2022 were set at a cost of $14 per dog for a one-year license. Three-year licenses will be available at a cost of $42 per dog, or dog owners will be able to purchase a permanent license for $140 per dog. The late fee for obtaining a dog license past the due date has been set at $14.
The Commissioners also passed a resolution on Monday setting the mileage reimbursement rate for witnesses in civil and criminal cases in the Fayette County Court System. Effective this October, County Court case witnesses will be reimbursed 45-cents per mile traveled.
Lastly, with the establishment of the new Fayette County Jail, more out-of-county inmates will be housed at the jail. In addition to Meigs, Gallia and Ross counties, the Fayette County Jail will also now house inmates from Pike County. The agreement with Pike County is the same as other county agreements: $65 per day per inmate. The agreement doesn’t cover medical transportation fees for inmates. Those fees will still be paid by an inmate’s county of origin.
