Floyd County Commissioners will consider adopting an ordinance requiring spay/neuter of pets, according to the Rome News Tribune.
The ordinance was proposed in the wake of an explosion in stray animals that has filled up PAWS, the Floyd County Public Animal Welfare Services facility on North Avenue. Animal control officers are no longer picking up strays unless they are injured or a danger to people.
While the board normally meets in the evening, a change in the time for Tuesday’s session was approved on Sept. 26, along with the cancellation of the Dec. 26 meeting.
Also on the agenda is a nonbinding resolution urging the governor and legislature “to continue efforts to reform and improve mental health services for the citizens of Georgia.”
