A meeting to discuss a study that examines the possible consolidation of
animal control services in Northampton County will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Charles Chrin Community Center in Palmer Township.
According to a letter from the county, one of the purposes of the meeting is so officials can gather public comment.
to hear from concerned citizens, including volunteer groups [and]
public officials about what, if anything, should be done to address
animal control on a county level," the letter said.
"Problems [with strays] have been growing in recent years and have
been exacerbated by the lack of an animal shelter in the county that
will regularly accept stray dogs or cats from police departments, the
state dog warden, or members of the public," it stated.
For those unable to attend the meeting, comments can be submitted to
county community development administrator Lori Sywensky by calling 610-559-3200, ext. 2, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Charles Chrin Community Center is located at 4100 Green Pond Road, Easton.
