Is there a city ordinance regarding animal odors? I would call City Hall but am hesitant considering that little or nothing is done about complaints. My neighbor raises dogs and the smell of poo can sometimes be overwhelming. It is never cleaned up or treated in any way.

Depends on where you live. If you're outside the city limits, you're pretty much SOL. If you're inside the city limits, you can go here

http://www.bremenga.gov/building%20Plan%20Zon...

and zoom in, and see what your zone is. If you're in a residential zone, then this would apply:

Article V, Section 500, 7. Agriculture and horticulture including private use greenhouses, except the raising of livestock or poultry, provided that no noises or odors are produced which are objectionable at the property line.(page 18, Bremen Zoning Ordinance.)

If it bothers you, complain. You live there, too.

I live in the city but when I have called City Hall before about another matter I was given the brush-off. Is there anyone you can recommend I speak with?

Is it illegal to raise dogs for sale in the city of Bremen?

I'm almost positive that kennels are administered by the Dept of Agriculture, and you have to have a license to run a dog breeding facility. Your best bet for that would be to talk to Animal Control.

Why not just go over and tell your neighbor the problem? But that would require a spine, and I'm

If you've got a problem, say it to their face.

It's difficult to approach people regarding things like this, especially if you don't know them well or you have reason to be afraid of them.

Maybe the OP has that sort of situation.

That's true.

OP, if the police don't help, and you can't face the person, then it's either buy Lysol or move. I can't think of anything else... Maybe the Health Department? Animal Control?

Spread a load of chicken litter on your lawn and enough people will complain that someone will show up from the city and you can tell them you are trying to mask the dog poop odor since you can't get any help otherwise.

Complaining about dog shit??? That's not near as bad as the Town smelling Honda-Lock
Who remembers the old rotten egg smell we used to get from the Rome paper mill at least they cleaned it up.
