The changes will not go into effect until after the second reading of the ordinance. The proposed changes are the result of ongoing discussions between the Board of Commissioners and the Animal Care & Control Advisory Board.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Spalding County Courthouse Annex.
The proposed changes include:
• clarifying the definition of an abused animal;
• elimination of multiple restraint districts, replacing them with a countywide district;
• restraint of dangerous animals and restraint of certain animals;
• defining proper enclosures; and
• defining an animal under restraint.
The advisory board also meets Monday at 4:15 p.m. at the annex. The advisory board will continue its discussion of animal licenses.
The Board of Commissioners also is scheduled to vote to set qualifying fees for the county offices to be filled in the upcoming general primary election and general election. These include Board of Commissioners districts 1, 3 and 4, Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education, Probate Court judge, clerk of Superior Court, tax commissioner, sheriff, State Court judge, coroner and chief magistrate judge.
