Boyle Fiscal Court is considering increases in dog license fees, from $1.50 to up to $20, for animals that aren't spayed or neutered.
They also want to make enforcement of the licenses more strict.
A public workshop on the issue will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday at the courthouse.
"This will have a significant impact on pet owners," said Judge-Executive Tony Wilder.
One option is to charge different fees for animals that are fixed. Those who pay the extra cost for an unfixed dog would receive a coupon toward having their animal fixed.
Dog owners are required to buy a license every year.
