Animal Control Committee to host community forums

Fulton’s Animal Control Committee has spent months developing a new, stronger ordinance for the city in response to a series of dog attacks.

Now that the group has finally compiled a final draft, it is looking for input from local residents to ensure all that work meets their expectations.

“We just wanted to get public input to see if we were on the right track,” said Les Hudson, Fulton’s planning and protective services director. “It’s a pretty touchy subject, and we want to make sure we get it right so we don’t have to go back and do it again.”

Fulton animal owners will have the opportunity to hear a short explanation regarding some of the changes the committee has made, followed by a question-and-answer session during three meetings: 7 a.m. on July 12 at Finally Tammy’s, 7 a.m. on July 14 at McDonald’s and 6 p.m. on July 20 at City Hall.
