It shall be unlawful for any person to keep any animal, except a domestic animal, in this city or to permit the same to be kept upon premises owned, occupied or controlled by said person except under conditions prescribed by this section. B. Any person desiring to keep any such animal shall submit to the city manager an application for a permit, accompanied by written evidence that three-fourths of the adjoining property owners or residents within a 200-foot radius from the site where the applicant proposes to keep said animals do consent to the keeping of such animals. The city manager shall cause a record to be made of its approval or disapproval of such permit, and provide a copy thereof to the applicant and to the police department. C. No stable, barn, shed, coop, hutch, pen, or shelter in which any animal is kept shall be located within 30 feet of a city street or sidewalk. Such structures, with their pens and yards, shall be kept clean and sanitary. D. Any and all animals and domestic animals kept in this city shall be protected by proper and adequate shelter from exposure to the elements. E. The manure and offal shall be removed by hauling beyond the city limits, unless used for fertilizer, in which case it shall be spread upon the ground evenly and turned under at once. Manure must be removed with sufficient frequency to prevent offensive odors. F. Diseased animals or diseased domestic animals shall be securely confined on the premises of their keeper and shall not be allowed to approach within 50 feet of any street, sidewalk or place of habitat of other animals or domestic animals. G. Any person permitted to keep an animal or domestic animal within the city shall be fully responsible for any injury, harm or discomfort to any person or property caused by such animal whether while confined within its habitat or at large outside its confines. Failure of the keeper of such animal to make restitution for any injury or harm or to abate any discomfort caused by such animal shall be considered to maintain a nuisance and may be dealt with as set forth in PMC 6.10.130(A).
