Layton - August 8, 2011

Layton City is upgrading the sewer line and water line on Fort Lane & Gentile St. The old 6.0 inch clay sewer pipe is deteriorating and will be replaced with new 8.0 inch PVC sewer pipe which will help to prevent future problems within this area. The water line and valves will be replaced on Gentile St. and approximately 200 ft. to the south on Fort Lane. New connections to homes & businesses within this project area will need to be made. Efforts are being made to reduce the down time to water and sewer services this may cause to the residents along Fort Lane, however, there may be times that services will be temporarily halted in order to complete the necessary connections. A 24 hour advance notice will be given to residents that are affected by any temporary loss to services. This work will begin on Monday, August 8, 2011 and will last for approximately 5 to 6 weeks, following this time period the roadway on Fort Lane will be resurfaced.

A storm drain system will also be added on Elm Street from the east side of 490 E. St. and connect to the existing storm drain on Fort Lane. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on the residents in this area. If you have any questions or concerns please contact: Alan Moss, 801-336-3704.

Layton City has created an updated list of recommended trees for residents to consider when planting in park strips that are in front of their homes. This list is not intended to dictate where or what type of tree you choose to plant on your private property. A park strip is the landscaped area between the street and sidewalk.

The list includes two categories of trees: one for trees planted in park strips between 3 and 5 feet and one for trees planted in park strips larger than 5 feet. Each tree is placed in a category based on its ability to thrive and grow to maturity in the amount of space provided in the park strip. For information on how to properly care for and plant your tree, please visit

Also on this list is a series of tree characteristics to help you make a more informed decision about the tree you select, including how far apart it should be planted from other similarly sized trees. Please be aware that trees with a mature height of 30 feet or more should not be planted beneath overhead power lines.

As a City, we look forward to improving the diversity of our “urban forest”! If you have any questions about this updated tree list please contact the Layton City Community and Economic Development Department at (801) 336-3780.

Why Should I Take the Time To Do This?
  • Many drugs flushed down the toilet cannot be removed by the sewer treatment plant or septic system.
  • These substances then get into our streams, rivers, lakes, groundwater and our soil and may cause harm to the environment.
  • Abuse of prescription drugs, particularly painkillers, has increased among teenagers and young adults.
  • More than half of people who abuse painkillers get the drugs from friends or relatives.
  • Children and pets can find medicine in your home or in your trash.
  • Drugs may be taken by accident, on purpose or illegally sold.
  • You can prevent accidental poisoning and drug abuse.
What if I cannot go to the Medication Take-Back Event?
  • A permanent collection bin is located in the lobby of the Layton Police Department or you can find permanent community collection sites near you at, and directions for safe disposal in your trash if there is no site near you. This website also lists other one-time Take-Back events occurring at different times and locations around the state.

Pets are beloved members of households in Layton City. However, Layton City has specific ordinances that govern the ownership and care of animals.

Here's the first of a two-part look at these ordinances in a question and answer format:

How many household pets are legal in Layton City?
Household pets are limited to the keeping of not more than two dogs or cats, or combination thereof, four months old or older. In other words, a household can have one cat and one dog; or two cats; or two dogs; but nothing exceeding the two quantity number; except as noted below. For example, having a kennel license would increase the numbers. Also, in addition to the two permitted animals, one seeing-eye, search and rescue, or other aid dog may be allowed under certain circumstances.

Why can a household only have two pets?
Layton City's law is based on years of experience, which have shown that the city as a whole is better off if only two pets are allowed per household, based on providing proper care and control.

When does a dog need to be licensed?
It is unlawful for any resident to own, keep, harbor, or maintain a dog over the age of four months of age, without registering and obtaining a license for such dogs from the Animal Control Department, or authorized vendor. All dogs brought into the City shall require registering and licensing within thirty days after they enter the City, or within thirty days after having reached the age of four months. Licensing a dog ensures it is properly vaccinated. Also, if the animal is ever lost, it is critical in finding the owner quickly.

How much does a dog license cost?
Annual licensing fees range from $10-$40, depending on if a dog is sterilized and has a microchip. Licenses can be purchased from Davis Animal Services, or from area veterinarians.

Why are dogs not allowed in any of the city's parks?
Based on clean up problems and too many situations of dogs running loose in city parks during past years, the city's leaders decided it was in the best interest of the majority to make it illegal for canines to be inside any city park. Pets are also prohibited from school grounds during school hours, unless they are part of a special class activity. The only exceptions to the above would be authorized service dogs.

Can I have my dog off a leash during a walk in public?
No. This violates Layton City laws regarding animals "at large." This means that an animal shall be considered to be "at large" when it is off the owner's property and not under immediate control by means of a durable restraint device, capable of keeping the animal restrained.

What is a dog owner's responsibility regarding clean up of their animal?
The person having custody of an animal shall be responsible for the immediate removal of any excreta deposited by their animal on any public walk, recreation area, or private property other than that belonging to the owner of the animal. Some pet clean up stations are available along some city trails. Also, pet stores sell special waste bags that can be carried by pet owners to clean up after their animals. A dog owner also needs to regularly clean up the excreta of his pets on their own property, so that odors do not offend any neighbors.

Can I take my dog or cat into a grocery store?
No. It is unlawful for any person to take or permit any animals, excluding Hearing or Seeing Eye Dogs, whether on a leash or in the arms of their owners, in any establishment or place of business where food or food products fit for human consumption are sold, or distributed, including but not limited to restaurants, grocery stores, meat markets, and fruit or vegetable stores.
