Press Release Gunn Park Fern Lake – Oxygen Depletion Causes Fish Kill On August 13, a series of events combined to cause an oxygen depletion event that ultimately caused a fish kill. These environmental factors included hot water temperatures, cloudy windless days, low water levels and an expanding green algae bloom that peaked and crashed. These factors combined created the perfect “storm” or aquatic conditions that depleted and decreased the oxygen level to a point where the aquatic system would not support fish life. This situation is not uncommon especially this year, where water levels have been unusually low. Cooler temperatures, a lower oxygen demand and rainfall will decrease the likely hood of this happening again this season. Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Fisheries Biologist, Don George has been working with the City on this project and will lead efforts to restock the fish population. Until then he recommends that anglers fish at the West Pond in Gunn Park. Anglers or interested individuals are advised to send questions to don.george@ks.gov.

April 6, 2018 IMPORTANT REMINDER—DOG LICENSE The City of Fort Scott requires that anyone who owns, keeps, possesses, or has control of a dog six months of age or older must have his or her pet licensed and vaccinated against rabies every year, no matter when acquired during the year. All dog license registrations will expire on May 31 each and every year. You can license or renew your dog license for June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019 at the water utility office in City Hall, 123 South Main Street during the month of May via cash, check, debit or credit card. Current office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Your dogs’ rabies vaccination must be up to date before your license can be issued. You will need the following paperwork: • A copy of the current rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian must be submitted. An invoice or statement of services is not sufficient as proof of rabies vaccination. Check your certificate for correct owner name, address, and pet information. • A spay/neuter certificate if it is not reflected on the rabies certificate. Fees for dog registration: • $3.00 for each neutered male dog or spayed female dog • $5.00 for each unneutered male dog or unspayed female dog A dog license identifies and protects your pet in case it becomes lost. Even indoor pets can get out and become lost. You are required to renew your license yearly and to keep your license updated when you move and/or your pet is given away, lost, stolen or is deceased. A dog license is not only a requirement but it provides the following benefits: • A license tells everyone that your pet is not a homeless stray. • When licensed, found pets can be quickly reunited with their owner. • Your license is proof that your pet has been vaccinated against rabies. Be sure to have the license tag on your pet’s collar at all times to help enable a quick return should they be found. Thank you.
