Community Cat Ordinance Neutered

San Angelo's Animal Services Advisory Committee needed but a few wording changes in its proposed policy on Community-Free Roaming Cats for the group to vote.  The committee specified the language in their November meeting with a city attorney present.  Staff failed to implement the committee's directive, thus no ordinance was available for the Committee to consider (despite this item being on the agenda).   The neuter definition that applies here is: "To render ineffective or powerless."   

What will the New Year bring?  Hopefully not more of the foot dragging, heel digging, obstinacy community animal groups have experienced for years from animal services.

Update 1-18-15:  The New Year brought a new Community-Free Roaming Cat Ordinance.  It's expected to go to City Council in February.
