BANGOR, Maine — Bangor residents should plan to register their dogs by Jan. 31 to avoid paying a $25 late fee, according to City Clerk Lisa Goodwin.

Dog licenses expired Jan. 1, but owners have a 31-day grace period during January.

After that, owners will be assessed the fee. It costs $6 to license a dog that has been spayed or neutered and $11 for a dog that can still reproduce.

Residents may license their dogs by coming to city hall during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or online at www.maine.gov/informe/municipal/doglicensing.htm.

There’s an additional $1 charge for online licenses.

Online licensing also may be accessed through the city’s website at www.bangormaine.gov under a link on the city clerk’s page. Online licensing ends after Jan. 31.

Residents who no longer have their pets are asked to notify the city so it can update its records.

For more information, call the city clerk’s office at 992-4220.
