Council Rejects Animal Control - What!!!
Dear Editor,

What a comedy! The Leavenworth City Council debating the worth of the Animal Control Services of the Humane Society. It seems that the advice given to the council supports contracting with the Humane Society. It would seem that the Humane Society has offered a reasonable contract. It is clear the Sheriffs office has other priorities. Unfortunately the Council seems to be concerned with the staffing model at the Humane Society. One councilman felt there were too many administrators for employees. Huh! It is painfully obvious the Council, at least 4 of the Council have absolutely no idea of what and how the Humane Society operates. The Humane Society operates from donations and services it provides. I would suggest that if the Council is so concerned with the value offered by the Humane Society they go visit the operation. Give me a break. Sign the contract. Provide animal control services, so that when I come into town to spend money, I can have a reasonable expectation that I am not going to be attacked by a stray animal.
