(a) An area may be designated after at least 70 percent of the enumerated dogs have been vaccinated as defined in subdivision (b) of section 57.1 of this Part.

(b) An area may be designated upon receipt of a resolution from the board of supervisors of the county, requesting the State Commissioner of Health to permit all dogs vaccinated against rabies to run at large, whereupon the commissioner may grant such privilege subject to the limitations of section 57.2 of this Part and subject to the following conditions:

(1) that the board of supervisors shall have provided funds and made the necessary arrangements for giving dog owners the opportunity of having their dogs vaccinated;

(2) that every effort shall be made to permit only vaccinated dogs to run at large;

(3) that, if within four months of the date of granting this request, 70 percent or more of the enumerated dog population have not been vaccinated, the commissioner may revoke this privilege.

Designation may be revoked at any time for failure to enforce the provisions of the Public Health Law or Chapter I of this Title.
