City looking to take reins of animal control
Councilman Phillips: I believe we can do it cheaper

After months of discussions and failed attempts to come to agreements with other agencies to oversee Dawsonville's animal control issues, the city council is now considering taking the job into its own hands. The council on Monday released copies of a proposed ordinance that would create an animal control board, establish a facility for a small shelter and hire a city veterinarian "on an annual basis for both care and euthanasia/disposal of impounded animals." City Attorney Dana Miles drafted the proposed ordinance at the direction of the council, which has tried for the last several months to come to an agreement over animal control within the city limits.
