Who Should Pay For Animal Control Officer?

Animal Control Officer Sam Osman may be a county employee, but most of his calls daily come from the city. County commissioners are growing weary of taking on the brunt of that expense. Chairman Rob Dean said he has met with City Council member Joe Judge but the two are “not in line” yet on an agreement. Dean illustrated how many of the calls aren’t even animal control in nature. He said one idea being discussed would be to have all such calls handled through police dispatch.
