     Department showing that he or she has notified the Police Department or other
     law enforcement agency of the dog or cat's new residence. (Ord. 1676, 2/7/94)

     dog or cat only being allowed to return if there is compliance with all regulations
     of this Article or the animal may be humanely euthanized by the Milwaukee Area
     Domestic Animal Control Commission or a licensed veterinarian.

     deemed necessary to ensure compliance with this Article.

     dogs or cats (in the aggregate) may be obtained from the Village Manager if he
     determines after investigation that the issuance of such special permit will not be
     injurious to public health, safety or welfare, or be inimical to harmonious
     residential neighborhood living. Such special permit may be revoked at any time
     or not renewed by the Village Manager in the event that he makes a further
     finding that the continuance of such special permit would be injurious to public
     health, safety or welfare or inimical to harmonious residential neighborhood
     living. The permit shall be valid for one year only after the date of issuance but
     may be renewed upon application as an original permit. Dogs and cats kept

      officer has reason to believe that the dog or cat bit a person, is infected with
      rabies or has been in contact with a rabid animal. For the purposes of this
      Section, a bite shall be defined as any penetration of the top layer of skin by
      teeth or scratches, abrasions, open wounds, or mucous membranes
      contaminated with the saliva of the dog or cat.

B.    Dogs or cats that are currently immunized against rabies may be quarantined on
      the premises of the owner by the Village Health Officer. If a dog or cat is
      quarantined because there is reason to believe that the dog or cat bit a person,
      and the dog or cat has not been currently immunized against rabies, the dog or
      cat shall be kept under strict isolation under the supervision of a veterinarian for
      at least ten days after the incident occurred. The supervision of a veterinarian,
      when required, shall include an examination of the dog or cat on the first day of
      isolation, on the last day of isolation, and on one intervening day. Dogs or cats
      that have been exposed to a rabid or suspect animal will be required to be
      revaccinated and restrained by a leash or confined for 60 days. If the animal is
      not currently immunized, it shall be leashed or confined for 180 days.

C.    If the observation period is not extended and if the veterinarian certifies that the
      dog or cat has not exhibited any signs of rabies and said letter is filed with the
      Police Department or Health Department, the animal may be released from
      quarantine.

D.    If the veterinarian determines that the dog or cat exhibits symptoms of rabies
      during the observation, the dog or cat shall be destroyed in a humane manner. If
      the dog or cat is suspected to have bitten a person, the veterinarian shall notify
      the person or person's physician.

D.    Every dog or cat in residence in the Village, either permanently or temporarily,
      over five months of age, must be licensed as required under Section 13-202 of
      the Village Code and vaccinated for rabies pursuant to the provisions of Section
      95.21 Wisconsin Statutes. The vaccination tag shall be attached to a collar and
      the collar with the tag attached, shall be kept on the dog or cat at all times,

      bitten a person shall report such fact to the Police Department or the Health
      Department.                                               (Ord. 1676, 2/7/94)

dog or cat known to have been infected with hydrophobia or rabies, or who shall fail to
report to the proper police or health authorities the existence of any dog or cat which he

C.    Shelter

      1.     No person shall fail to provide any animal in his or her charge with shelter
             from inclement weather to insure the protection and comfort of the animal.

      2.     When sunlight is likely to cause overheating or discomfort to any animal,
             shade shall be provided by natural or artificial means to allow protection
             from the direct rays of the sun, but still allow air to pass to keep the animal
             cool.         (Ord. 1676, 2/7/94)

           provided with moistureproof and windproof shelter of a size which allows
           the animal to turn around freely and to easily sit, stand and lie in a normal
           position and to keep the animal clean, dry and comfortable. Whenever
           the outdoor temperature is below 40 degrees F., clean, dry bedding
           material shall be provided in such shelters for insulation and to retain the
           body heat of the animal. Motor vehicles or garages shall not be used as

     comfortable.

E.   Leashes

     Chains, ropes or leashes shall be placed or attached so that they not be
     entangled with another animal or object and shall be of sufficient length in
     proportion to the size of the animal to allow the animal proper exercise and
     convenient access to food, water and shelter. Such leash shall be located so as
     not to allow an animal to trespass on public property or private property
     belonging to others nor in such a manner as to cause harm or danger to persons
     or other animals. Such leash shall be located so as not to allow the animal to
     jump over an obstacle where the leash can be entangled and the animal choke.

A.    Curfew for Minors

      No person under the age of 17 shall loiter away from his home between the
hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., nor shall any parent or guardian of such minor
knowingly permit such minor to loiter away from his home during such hours, unless
such minor is accompanied by a parent, guardian or some person 18 years of age or

                                        13-45
                                     Section         Chapter 13 – Police Regulations

older standing in loco parentis, or unless performing an errand or duty if directed by his
parent or guardian, or of urgent necessity, or unless pursuing the duties of his
employment in an expeditious and orderly manner, or unless going directly home from
places of business, amusement or private homes.

      1.     The term "loiter" as referred to herein shall mean to aimlessly idle, delay,
             linger, dawdle, congregate, stroll, stand, wander or play away from home
             during the hours aforesaid.

      2.     Any person under the age of 17 violating the provisions of this section

      1.     It shall be unlawful for anyone to loiter or prowl in a place, at a time, or in
             a manner not usual for law-abiding individuals under circumstances that
             warrant alarm for the safety of persons or property in the vicinity. Among
             the circumstances which may be considered in determining whether such
             alarm is warranted is the fact that the actor takes flight upon appearance
             of a police officer, refuses to identify himself, or manifestly endeavors to
             conceal himself or any object. Unless flight by the actor or other
             circumstances makes it impracticable, a police officer shall, prior to any
             arrest for an offense under this subsection, afford the actor an opportunity
             to dispel any alarm which would otherwise be warranted by requesting
             him to identify himself and explain his presence and conduct. No person
             shall be convicted of an offense under this subsection if the police officer
             did not comply with the preceding sentence, or if it appears at trial that the
             explanation given by the actor was true, and, if believed by the police
             officer at the time, would have dispelled the alarm.

      2.     It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to stand, assemble or loiter
             upon any sidewalk, street, public ground or public way in this Village so as
             to obstruct, hinder or impede free passage upon or along same or
             obstruct, hinder or impede free ingress or egress to and from any place of
             business, institution or public building or property; no person or persons
             so assembled shall refuse or neglect to move or depart or give free
             passage after being requested so to do by the owner, lessee, tenant,
             manager or occupant of such premises obstructed as aforesaid, or upon
             order of any police officer in the Village of Shorewood.

           occupants therein in a clandestine manner.

           place whether public or private without the permission of the owner or
           person in possession or in control thereof.

     6.    It shall be unlawful for any person to loiter in or about a restaurant, tavern
           or other public building. As used in this subsection, "loiter" means to,
           without just cause, remain in a restaurant, tavern, or public building, or to
           remain upon the property immediately adjacent thereto after being asked
           to leave by the owner or person entitled to possession or in control thereof
           or by any police officer.

           c.     That if a cash deposit is made and the alleged violator does not
                  appear in court, the non-appearance will be deemed a plea of "no

     8.     A direction that if the alleged violator elects to make a cash deposit, the
            statement which accompanies the citation shall be signed by the alleged
            violator to indicate that the statement required under Subsection 7 hereof
            has been read. Such statement shall be sent or brought to the

A.   Who may issue. Any law enforcement officer or community service officer of

     under this ordinance. Further, Humane Officers licensed by the State of
     Wisconsin are hereby authorized to issue Village citations to those Village
     residents who do not license their dogs or cats as required by the Village Code.
     In addition, citations may also be issued by other Village Officials with respect to
     ordinances under their jurisdiction which are directly related to the duties and
     responsibilities of such Village Officials. Such Village Officials shall have the
     authority to delegate the power to issue such citations covering matters within
     their jurisdiction to other members of their department. Authority delegated
     hereunder to issue citations shall be revoked in the same manner by which it is
     conferred.

B.   Jurisdiction. The issuance of a citation by a person authorized to do so under
     Paragraph A hereof shall be deemed adequate process to give the Shorewood
     Municipal Court, or any other appropriate court, jurisdiction over the subject

     so, and for the purposes set forth in Sections B and C of Section 13-1403

Section 13-1403    Violator's Option; Procedure on Default

A.   The person named as the alleged violator in a citation may appear in court at the
     time specified in the citation or may mail or deliver personally a cash deposit in
     the amount specified within the time specified, to the Shorewood Police
     Department. If a person makes a cash deposit, he may, nevertheless, appear in
     court at the time specified in the citation, provided that the cash deposit may be
     retained for application against any forfeiture which may be imposed.

B.   If a person appears in court in response to a citation, the citation may be used as
     the initial pleading, unless the court directs that a formal complaint be made, and
     such appearance confers personal jurisdiction over the person. The person may
     plead "guilty" or "no contest" or "not guilty." If the person pleads "guilty" or "no
     contest," the court shall accept the plea, enter a judgment of guilty, and impose a
     forfeiture. A plea of "not guilty" shall put all matters in such case at issue and the
     matter shall be set for trial.

C.   If the alleged violator makes a cash deposit and fails to appear in court, the
     citation may serve as the initial pleading and the violator shall be deemed to
     have tendered a plea of "no contest" and submitted to a forfeiture not exceeding
     the amount of the deposit. The court may either accept the plea of "no contest"
     and enter judgment accordingly, or reject the plea. If the court accepts the plea
     of "no contest," the defendant may move within ten days after the date set for his
     appearance to withdraw the plea of "no contest," open the judgment and enter a
     plea of "not guilty" if he shows to the satisfaction of the court that his failure to
     appear was due to mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect. If the
     plea of "no contest" is accepted, and not subsequently changed to a plea of "not
     guilty," no costs or fees shall be taxed against the violator. If the court rejects
     the plea of "no contest" or if the alleged violator does not make a cash deposit,
     and fails to appear in court at the time specified in the citation, an action for
     collection of the forfeiture may be commenced. The Village may commence
     action under Sec. 66.0114, Wis. Stats. The citation may be used as the
     complaint in the action for the collection of the forfeiture.

A.   Need. Certain alarm systems include a dialer so that when the system is
     actuated, the dialer automatically dials the police and fire station using regular

     incoming lines to the police and fire station interfering with other emergency calls
     and the proper and orderly operation of the police and fire departments.

     electronic device or attachment which automatically selects a public telephone
     trunk line of the police or fire departments or any other department, office, officer

     message to report an emergency. A system in operation on the effective date of

     that it no longer is in violation, or shall be discontinued in operation within 90
     days of the date hereof.

B.   Each false alarm for a business or commercial property occurring within each
     calendar year shall be subject to one hundred dollar ($100.00) false alarm
     response charge.

C.   If any service charge is not paid within 60 days of the billing date, the charge will
     be placed on the real estate tax bill of the property for which the false alarm
     response was necessary, per Wisconsin Statues § 66.0627(4).

D.   Multiple false alarms deemed by the Police and/or Fire Department to arise from
     the same cause within 24-hour period, when that cause is due to a mechanical
     defect, shall only be counted as one.

                                        13-78
                                     Section          Chapter 13 – Police Regulations

E.    A false alarm service charge maybe waived upon presentation by the applicant
      responsible for same, of evidence which satisfies the Chief of Police or Fire
      Chief or his/her designee, that the false alarm was occasioned by causes other
      than negligence, carelessness or inadequate or improper maintenance.

F.    A 90 day grace period on all new alarm systems that have been upgraded by
      reconstruction or conversion to new technology shall be granted, provided the
      alarm installer informs Police and Fire Department in writing, when a new system
      is installed or upgraded.

G.     If a property owned by a person who has violated Section 12-1505B is sold to

to the penalties set forth herein on violation of any of the provisions of this article.


Section 13-1510     Penalties

Section 13-1505B, shall, upon conviction thereof, be subject to a forfeiture of not less

           d.     Conducted an evaluation to determine whether social problems are
