Why did dog license fees recently increase?

The City strives to have dog license fees, along with impound related fees, pay for about 50% of the Animal Control budget. In order to reach this goal, fees are raised to keep up with increases in expenses. Without increases in license fees, the percentage of costs covered by fees would decrease every year. This would once again shift the burden for paying for the majority of Animal Control expenses to the public in general.
