Future complaints

Complainant must come to the Independence Health Department to fill out the paperwork required to issue a ticket to the dog owner. You and the dog owner will need to appear in court to talk to the Judge about the problem. This can be done at anytime and the first two steps can be skipped. Please be specific about dates and times the dog was a nuisance to you.
