What to do if you've lost your pet...
Contact local animal control shelters and private rescues to file a report. Most shelters are only required to keep strays 3-5 days before they can be euthanized. Check shelters in surrounding counties and contact local veterinarians. Post the information regarding your lost pet on the website www.sumnerhumane.org along with a description and search the site to see if someone's found your pet.
Walk your neighborhood, knock on doors and leave your number with your neighbors. Most people walk the streets around their home and call for their pet. Since a well-meaning person may take a stray animal into their home, people who knock on doors are more likely to get results.
Post flyers with your pet's picture and your phone number. Put them in high traffic areas such as local veterinarian offices, grocery stores, drug stores, dry cleaners, etc. Be sure to obtain permission before posting notices. To make an easy flyer, visit PetBond Website
When you contact animal control offices, give detailed information about any special markings. Check at the shelter yourself and ask if they have found deceased animals matching your pet's description. Check the found ads in the local newspapers. Run an ad in the local newspapers and include as much information as possible.
Sewer systems carry waste that is treated before it reenters the environment whereas stormwater runoff is not treated and drains directly into the local creeks and streams and stays within the environment.
Providing for and addressing stormwater is a public service provided by the City of Goodlettsville. All buildings contain impervious surfaces (surfaces which prevent water from being infiltrated into the ground). Impervious surfaces on your parcel inevitably place a demand on the stormwater system. Stormwater runoff generated by any property must be controlled and conveyed once it leaves the property so that it does not create problems for others. Both the quantity of stormwater and the quality of stormwater impacts the entire stormwater system for the City. All property owners receive indirect benefits from a properly maintained and operated stormwater management system for the entire City.
Stormwater management activities with broad benefits include keeping public streets drained and cleared, making necessary stormwater infrastructure upgrades, reducing erosion and other pollutants that enter streams and lakes, protecting and restoring streams and other aquatic habitat areas and collecting and conveying stormwater safely through all parts of town. A portion of the fees also provide for compliance with Federal, State, and local regulations for water quality improvements; administration of the City's stormwater management ordinance; public involvement and educational programs; responding to public health and safety issues that benefit all property owners.
Revenues from stormwater fees can only be used for stormwater-related expenditures. Funding from general revenue sources faces fierce competition each year among elected officials and department directors vying for their share of limited dollars. Under property tax systems, stormwater managers often cannot count on budget allocations, do not have as much control over their budgets and cannot plan adequate projects.
Property owners believe charges are fairer. Impervious area, the basis for most stormwater charges, can be measured and is a reasonably objective measure. The idea that property owners pay in proportion to the measured amount of hard surface on their property seems fairest. Property values, conversely, are unrelated to the problem of stormwater runoff.
Other components of the program include:
1. Improved water quality through monitoring and reduction of illicit discharges and pollutants.2. Public information and education 3. Maintenance or repair of the City's stormwater system4. Development of stormwater design standards and regulations5. Field inspections and enforcement6. Construction of identified drainage study projects
