The Elyria Animal Control Committee was officially disbanded by Council last night. It was formed under City Council's prior leadership and was no longer effective due to a lack of guidance and controversy within the group.
A new group will be created under the Mayor's office, from where it will be directed and controlled. Over 25% of the calls to City Hall, almost 1/3, involve an animal complaint. Elyria no longer has an animal warden and needs to take action with regard to its animal issues, particularly feral cats and the deer overpopulation.
If you are interested in participating, contact the Mayor's office at City Hall.
