Animal Services Task Force Members invite you to their next meeting


The Regional Animal Services Task Force has about a month to finalize its review of animal services and would like your input. The Task Force is meeting this Thursday evening, March 29, beginning at 6 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, One East First Street.

The City Council formed the group to look in to regional animal services operations and whether recommendations from a 2009 consultant’s report have been implemented. Voters approved a property tax increase of up to three cents to pay for a new facility and animal services. There is a surplus of more than $4.5 million in funds.

The Task Force recently toured the Longley Lane facility, which is now under the direction of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office. The group is compiling a report with their findings and possible recommendations, including new hours and more staff at the facility. The report is due to the City Council on April 25, 2012.
