Unhappy about animal control

To the editor:

In regards to the new animal control proposal being considered in Fort Dodge, I would respectfully ask that the City Council members address citizens’ concerns that animal control officer response to calls of cats and dogs observed running loose be investigated.

I have reported loose dogs coming onto my property, as well as my neighbor reporting loose cats, with unsatisfactory response from Animal Control. Council members, as well as the chief of police, is it asking too much to have this matter resolved? This has been an ongoing problem, at least in the East Lawn Acres neighborhood.

If you want more of our money by raising license fees, then it is only right that we the citizens get more for our money, period.
