RE: Lower Hillsborough Reservoir
Parcel No. 13-300-290
Removal of cattle from property
We have several choices in this matter.
1. We can proceed under Chapter 707, tre
these cattle as estrays. Under this procedure
District would actually take up the cattle, adv
this for 5 days before going before the Justice
Peace (Judge of the Civil Court of Record) for
warrant for appraisment and subsequent sale to
2. We can proceed under Chapter 588 (spe
Section 518.16) and request assistance from the
ing officer from the sheriff's office. We have
before and he has been very cooperative.
3. The District can construct a fence al
boundaries of the property to keep the cattle o
4. The District can offer the property f
through the prescribed procedure, hoping to obt
rental for use of the property.
5. We can quit worrying about the matter
the cattle to use District property until such
it appears that this is injurious to property 0
I believe if the District is not going to const
fence then the easiest way to handle this would
through the assistance of the Sheriff's officei
Section 588.16 makes it the duty of the Sheriff
ain a fair
They ate as
8/28/70 to MGG 13-300-290
enforce the State Fence Law and impound animals
at large or straying. Section 518.18 authorized
fee of $2.50 per animal for impounding plus mil<
plus 500 per day for feed and care of the anima.
This would get to be expensive pretty quick and
believe the Sheriff would cooperate with us.
If you want to proceed along these lines I thin]
should then give the District specific instruct:
on how to proceed under these statutes and requ
they push this diligently. Otherwise we ought
about it until we start having complaints.
