Annotations

  • Where a village ordinance provides for impounding of animals running at large and fixes a certain fee which must be paid before the animal will be released, no lien is created for fee or charges permitted not specified in ordinance. Martin v. Foltz, 54 Neb. 162, 74 N.W. 418 (1898).
