Step 1:Summit County Animal Control suggests that you contact the owner regarding the barking dog in an effort to resolve the problem at a neighborhood level first. This can be done in person or by sending a signed letter describing the specific problem. It is recognized that contacting your neighbor first is not always possible or desirable for you. If you are uncomfortable making the initial contact an Animal Control Officer (ACO) can intervene.
Step 2: If the problem persists after the initial contact or if you aren’t comfortable contacting the owner, a warning can be issued. To issue a warning, the following information is needed from you. A. Complete Address of the dog owner. If this is unknown, an ACO can try to assist you in gaining this information.B. Description of dog(s) and circumstances. i.e. color, breed, size, etc. Can you see the dog(s)? C. Specific date and time frames and/or intervals the dog(s) were barking. Example: “The dog barked from 8:00am to 10:00am” Note: “The dog barks all the time” is too vague of a statement and does not meet the elements of describing the nuisance.D. A signed complaint. An ACO will produce a typed complaint including the above information and provide it to you to sign.Step 3:If the barking complaint is not resolved within 72 hours of the issuance of the first warning, then you will be instructed to sign a second complaint. A second warning will then be issued. Step 4: If the problem persists after another 72 hours, then you will be encouraged to sign another complaint for a citation to be issued. By doing so, you must be willing to testify in court, should that become necessary.
In order to adopt a pet, you must:
Adoption fees include the cost of the microchip and initial chip registration, spay or neuter surgery, license fee for the first year, current rabies and distemper vaccination, and a veterinary health exam. These fees also partially cover the cost of the animal’s care and feeding during the animal’s stay at the shelter.

You will be given 20 days to provide the shelter with proof of rabies vaccination and have the citation voided, or you may pay the citation fine or appear in court.

A septic contractor/Installer must be tested and licensed by the Summit County Environmental Health Department. The test is open book, taken from the current OWS Regulations. There are fees associated with testing and licensing. Regulations are available on the EH webpage or may be purchased at the office. Testing takes, on average, 3 hours. Licenses must be renewed annually. If a license lapses the test must be retaken. More information can be found at the link below.
Yes it can. In order to permit an OWTS design, EH staff must visit the property and verify that the soils/groundwater conditions are suitable and that all required setbacks can be met. Freezing temperatures and snow can prevent us from doing this. Generally, OWTS permits cannot be issued during the months of October – May.
If ground water is not checked during seasonally high groundwater, EH staff may conservatively assume shallow groundwater and require an OWTS design that is appropriate for high groundwater. Seasonal high groundwater is generally during May – June depending on elevation and weather. The ideal time to obtain an OWTS permit is in June. Consult with your designer or this office for more details.
OWTS are generally constructed between June – November due to the challenges of working in freezing temperatures and snow.

All Summit County roads are assigned a Summit County road number to assist Emergency Services in locating a specific address. Roads that have a county road number may or may not be maintained by the county.
The short answer is because it hasn't been accepted for county maintenance. If you would like to have your road maintained by the county, you must submit your request to the Summit County Engineer. For a complete description of the process, see Section 5500 of the Road and Bridge Standards.
Parking on county roads is illegal in Summit County, and it is the responsibility of every property owner to provide adequate off right of way parking. On road parking presents particular difficulties during snow removal season, and the Sheriff’s Department may order illegally parked vehicles to be towed.
During snow removal operations, snow is pushed off the road onto the county right of way. Private driveways access through this right of way area and are the responsibility of the homeowner to keep clear.
When clearing your driveway, either by yourself or with the aid of a private contractor, be aware that it is unlawful to push or throw snow onto or across the roadway. Your snow must be disposed of on your own property. Snow pushed onto the road not only makes plowing more difficult for road crews, but can cause a dangerous obstacle in the roadway or a nuisance to your neighbors.
Arterial roads, such as the Dillon Dam Road, Swan Mountain Road, and school bus routes, receive priority maintenance. Secondary priority is given to collector roads through subdivisions, followed by other lower volume roads.
Questions regarding speed limits on roads or methods used for slowing traffic should be directed to the County Engineer at (970) 668-4212.
Requests for signage should be directed to the County Engineer at (970) 668-4212.
