LITTLE ROCK ANIMAL SERVICES ADVISORY BOARD SETS PUBLIC HEARINGS ON CAT ORDINANCE CHANGES
(Monday, January 12, 2009) – The Little Rock Animal Services Advisory Board is hosting two public hearings to gather input on proposed changes to City ordinances pertaining to domestic cats.
According to Tracy Roark, the City’s Animal Services Manager, “The proposed ordinance changes would include both mandatory sterilization and micro-chipping of all free-roaming cats.”
The first public hearing will be Wednesday, January 14 at the Adult Leisure Center, 6401 West 12th Street. It will be from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm. As was the case with the Potentially Dangerous Breed Ordinance public hearings, these will be limited-forum hearings with comment time reserved only for Little Rock citizens.
The second hearing will be on Wednesday, January 28, at the Adult Leisure Center from 6:30 to 8:00 as well.
For more information on the proposed changes, the public is encouraged to call Little Rock Animal Services at 501-376-3067. Copies of the proposed changes are available for review at the Animal Village; copies are also available via email.
