The Hoyt Lakes City Council on December 22, 2014, adopted Ordinance No. 208, An Ordinance Relating to the Prohibition of Deer Feeding in the City of Hoyt Lakes. The following is an excerpt from City of Hoyt Lakes Ordinance No. 208:
“It shall be unlawful for any person or group to place or permit to be placed on the ground, or within five feet of the ground surface, either on property owned or controlled by such person or on property owned by others, any grain, fodder, fruit, vegetables, nuts, hay or other edible materials, which may reasonably be expected to intentionally result in deer feeding, unless such items are screened or protected in a manner that prevents deer from feeding on them. Also prohibited are salt licks and powder or liquid deer attractants. Living fruit trees and other live vegetation shall not be considered as deer feeding.”
The Ordinance provides that any person, firm, or corporation violating any of the provisions of this ordinance shall be subject to an administrative penalty. The first offense is $100 and shall constitute a petty misdemeanor. A second offense within a 12-month time period is $250 and shall constitute a misdemeanor. Any further violations within a 12-month time period shall be $500. Deer feeding prohibition is in the following sections of Hoyt Lakes: 7, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 and 18, Township 58, Range 14 West, which includes all residential areas, campground, golf course, beach, cemetery, Colby Ridge, Patriots Point and Lakeview (map available at City Hall).
