    First, you will be sent a notice that you are delinquent. If you still don’t pay then a lien will be placed on your property.
  • What is a Lien?
    The lien will prevent you from selling, or refinancing the property without making satisfactory payment arrangements with the Creekside Home Owners Association.. If satisfactory arrangements are made, the lien may be discharged altogether or postponed in favor of a bank or other agency.

Pets
  • Are cats covered under the containment ordinance?
    Yes, cats and all domestic animals must be kept on the owner’s property, just like dogs. This best way to keep cats on your property is to keep them indoors. Some people choose to build pens (with tops) to let their cats enjoy the great outdoors safely.
     
    Courtesy of the Paulding County Government, Department of Public Safety Animal Control Division:
     
  • Does Paulding County have a leash law?
    Yes, although the ordinance is not technically a “leash law”, there are containment laws that govern pet owners in the county. This ordinance does not specify that the animal must be tied up or inside a fence at all times (which allows owners to use products such as invisible fence). Basically, all pets must be kept on the pet owners property at all times. If the pet leaves the property it must be secured by a leash.
  • My neighbors dog keeps barking what can I do?
    The best action is to call the Paulding County Animal control office @ 770-445-1511, for barking dogs or dogs wandering the neighborhood.
