Commissioners Hear Humane Society Presentation

With Smith County growing, local animal control says it is becoming much more difficult controlling and caring for strays.

Monday, Gayle Helms presented Smith County Commissioners with a three phase presentation to expand the humane society's facility. The plan includes building a new animal intake center, impound kennel, and animal control building. Helms also suggested a task force that would combine Tyler and Smith County animal control.

"I don't think there is enough enforcement of the current ordinances. I don't think people are educated I don't think people are responsible pet owners It's really so unfair to these animals and we have to take personal responsibility," said Helms.

Commissioners are now asking for an immediate motion for next week's agenda.
