Does the City code provide any restrictions on barking dogs?
Yes. Animal Control Regulations (Chapter 6-2, City of Montrose Municipal Code) contains the City's regulations which prohibit several nuisance animal behaviors, including continuously barking or screeching animals.

While the City's code enforcement officer [(970) 240-1416] can provide assistance, it is usually best to try to resolve the matter with the animal's owner before contacting the City.
