Did you know pet cats need to be registered with the City of Trenton?
If not, don't worry. You aren't the only one.
At least one Trenton City Council member was unaware Monday night of a city ordinance that requires residents to register dogs and cats.
Council members voted in favor, on the first reading, of raising the fee for licensing dogs and cats from $10 to $12 at the Trenton City Council meeting.
The change in the current ordinance must make it through a second reading before it goes into effect.
Trenton officials also voted in favor of changing the month in which residents need to renew their dog and cat licenses from July to January.
According to the new ordinance, residents must obtain or renew dog and cat licenses with the Office of the City Clerk at Trenton City Hall by January 1, each year.
Council members are set to vote to put the ordinance changes into effect at the next regularly scheduled Trenton City Council meeting at 8 p.m. March 18.
