From Harford County government:
The Harford County Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits (DILP) announced changes to the county’s dog licensing procedures that took effect on February 18, 2014. These changes are the result of Harford County Council Bill 13-47, introduced at DILP’s request and passed unanimously in December, 2013.
Changes to the licensing procedure include:
A one-time extension for current licenses set to expire June 30, 2014 was approved. The extension will establish a new expiration date of September 1, 2014.
All dog licenses issued after February 18, 2014 are set to expire one year from date of issuance.
For this year only, renewal notices sent out in May will go out in July. All future renewal notices will be sent 30 days prior to the license expiration.
