LITTLE ROCK ANIMAL SERVICES ADVISORY BOARD PUBLIC HEARING ON CAT ORDINANCE CHANGES POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER
(Tuesday, January 27, 2009) – Due to inclement weather, the Little Rock Animal Services Advisory Board has postponed the January 28 public hearing regarding proposed changes to City ordinances pertaining to domestic cats.
The hearing will now be on February 4, 2009, from 6:30pm until 8:00pm. It will be at the Adult Leisure Center, 6401 West 12th Street.
According to Tracy Roark, the City’s Animal Services Manager, “We were pleased with the attendance two weeks ago and appreciated the feedback. Because of the current weather forecast, we wanted to give ample notice that tomorrow’s meeting was being rescheduled and to let people know when the new time would be.”
The Animal Services Advisory Board is examining proposed ordinance changes which would include both mandatory sterilization and micro-chipping of all free-roaming cats.
This is the second of two hearings. The first public hearing was on January 14. 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.
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.
