BONIFAY – Resident Connie Land came before the Bonifay City Council during their April 14 meeting to seek reprieve from her neighbor, Misty Peak, whom she accused of too many complaints against her dogs.

She said the term “nuisance” was too broadly used in the animal control ordinance.

“I’ve lived there for over 25 years and never had a complaint about my dogs, now this new neighbor moves in and it’s just letter after letter complaining about my dogs,” said Land. “I’ve got letters from my other neighbors stating that my dogs aren’t a problem. Why can one person cause me so much problems?”

Police Chief Chris Wells explained that one letter of citation had been issued for a court date and that Land had been let go with a warning.

Land said she had bought shock collars a little over a week ago and that she no longer lets her dogs stay out at night.

After testimony from Peak saying that the last complaint she had was in late March the Council agreed that Land’s course of action plus the addition of Peak’s privacy fence seems to have quelled the situation.

County Engineer Amir Zafar came before the Council to inform them that their time for this phase of road repairs were coming to an end and that the top five roads for repair, Sand Path Road, Minnesota Avenue east of Oklahoma Avenue, Banfill Avenue at McGee Street, Veneer Circle and North Varner Street and Nebraska Avenue intersection would be completed by April 28 and if there was any more time or money left they would continue working on streets.
