Welcome to the City of Corcoran
Incorporated in 1914, the City of Corcoran is located in the heartland of California's fertile San Joaquin Valley. Corcoran is a "small town" in the best sense of the word, with its citizens working together on major community projects. Corcoran has been built on a strong agricultural base because it is located near one of the most remarkable geographic features in the San Joaquin Valley, the Tulare Lake Basin, which is the most fertile region in the world.
News & Announcements
Fog can be thought of as a cloud at ground level. It forms when the temperature drops to the dew point (the temperature at which air is saturated), and invisible water vapor in the air condenses to form suspended water droplets. Fog can reduce visibility to 1/4 mile or less, creating hazardous driving conditions. If you can't postpone your trip until dense fog lifts -- usually by late morning or the afternoon -- follow these tips:
(Corcoran, Calif.) The Corcoran Police Department Animal Control Officer responds to the public's complaints related to dogs, animals running at large and investigates all dog bite complaints. Dogs and animals which are caught running at large are impounded locally at the City of Corcoran kennel temporarily and then transported to the Avenal Animal Shelter for additional holding if not claimed by an owner.
The Animal Control Officer investigating animal bite complaints determines if the incident requires some type of isolation for the animal. Animals that are unlicensed or lack their appropriate vaccinations are isolated at the Avenal Animal Shelter for 10 days or at a veterinarian's office of the animal owner's choice for five days. If the bite animal is licensed and properly vaccinated a home isolation may be possible if no other pets reside on the premises. Home isolations are for a period of 10 days and the animal control officer will check on the animal at least one time during the isolation period. If the animal has bitten on a prior occasion, home isolations are not allowable.
