Water conservation tips
The City of Owensville has adopted ordinances to control orderly growth with the city limits. All electric, plumbing and general contruction require a building permit. Any building being erected, converted, enlarged, reconstructed, moved or structurally altered must meet these requirements. Those who are planning any such work should contact the Building Code Official in advance to construction.
Control is also exercised upon the location of any structure wintin the boundary lines of the said lot.
Animals at large
The owner of the animal is required to properly restain their pets. Any dog/cat found running at large may be impounded at the owner's expense. A durable rabies tag should be securely attached to the collar of your pet whenever outdoors.
If your pet is missing contact the Animal pound at 573-437-3422.
It is the responsibility of the property owner, renter, etc. to remove tall weeds growing on the property and to keep the grass mowed under 12 inches and the property free of trash, debris and clutter.
