Councilman suggests making animal shelter a city department
A call made over the airwaves for donations to the animal shelter has a local Councilman offering ideas for a solution.
Shelter officials denied they were ever out of food because of aid from a private donor, but Councilman Mike Garza says the funding they receive from the City is not enough.
He actually suggests making it a City department, and that it has been brought up with Carlos Villarreal, the City Manager:
"I know the City Manager has talked about doing a commitment to bring in that house now, to make it a City department, so none of these issues would occur."
The City entered a contract with the animal shelter back on October 1st, providing over $200,000 in funding.
