Dog registrations on rise in Opotiki

The Opotiki District Council is on course to break its own record for most dog registrations in a year.

In a report by planning and regulatory group manager Gerard McCormick its been revealed 1505 Opotiki dogs have been registered over the past seven months.

That's up from last year's 1460.

Mr McCormick believes certain initiatives by Council have helped that number grow, including employing additional staff.
