Fence Viewers are appointed by Council to arbitrate and make awards as to the cost of the fence construction along common property lines. The Fence Viewers will attend the property to visually inspect the area and, once completed, they will file a report outlining the responsibilities to each property owner (section of fence to be erected and type), assign a date by which the fence must be constructed, and assess costs for their attendance.

Poundkeeper

The Poundkeeper is responsible for securing and housing any at large livestock. The Poundkeeper will house and feed such animal(s) until the owner pays the required pound fees and takes the animal back to their farm.
