Hearing officer named for dangerous dog designations

Email

BACKUS — Cass County Board voted Tuesday to contract with Jon Eclov to serve as the county’s hearing officer for appeals of dangerous dog designations.

The board took this action in response to a recent court decision that determined counties do not have to hold appeal hearings for owners of dogs determined to be “potentially dangerous”, but they do have to provide a neutral party to hear appeals from owners of dogs deemed “dangerous.”
