Q. What should I do if I receive a letter telling me that my tax refund will be intercepted?
A. This is a new way that the court has to obtain fine money from people that don't pay. This is called a TRIP (Tax Refund Interception Program). Essentially, your state tax refund, if you would be getting one, would be sent to Edgerton Municipal court to satisfy your fine. Only the amount of the fine and a service fee would be intercepted. You would still receive any refund over and above the fine and service fee.

QUESTIONS ABOUT PARKING
Q. Where should I park my car during and after a snow fall so that I don't get a ticket?
A. Parking on the street is prohibited until the street has been plowed from curb to curb.
Q. Can I park in the Municipal Parking Lot during snow removal?
A. Yes, Park in the back of the Municipal parking lot (posted by signs) downtown, until the main lot is plowed. Then move your vehicle to the main lot so that the city plows can remove the snow from the back parking spaces also.
QUESTION ABOUT STRAY ANIMALS
Q. If my dog or cat leaves my yard, is my dog or cat considered running at large?
A. Yes. As long as your pet stays on your property, the stray animal does not apply. When your pet leaves your property it must be on a leash and under your control.
Q. What happens if he/she is seen running at large?
A. If an Edgerton Police Officer sees your pet running at large you will receive a warning the first time. A progressive enforcement process will then begin. If your pet is caught again running at large within 1 year, you will receive a citation for allowing an animal to run at large. (see the ordinance page for details) The fines are also progressive and become more expensive with each violation.
Q. What happens if my pet is caught running at large?
A. Your pet will be taken into custody and transported to the Edgerton Police Department. Your pet will then be held in one of the two dog cages which are in the garage of the Police Department. If your pet has a City of Edgerton and/or a Veterinarian identification tag on his/her collar, a representative of the Edgerton Police Department will contact you by telephone. If your pet does not have a collar on, and the officer does not know your pet, the Rock County Humane Society will be contacted and your pet will be taken to the Humane Society to be held until the owner can be ascertained.
Q. How can I get my pet back if he/she is caught running at large?
A. Contact the Edgerton Police Department. If your pet has been captured, but you contact the Police Department before the Humane Society has taken custody of your pet, you can pick your pet up at the Police Department. If your pet has already been transported to the Rock County Humane Society you will still need to contact the Police Department first. You must come to the Police Department and pay a $50.00 handling fee which is charged every time that an animal is handled by any Edgerton Police Department Representative. You will then be issued an Animal Control Order, which will be your receipt if you must pick you pet up at the Rock County Humane Society. The Humane Society will NOT release your pet until you have this signed Animal Control Order.
