The Spalding County Board of Commissioners earlier this week approved the second and final reading to change the county’s animal control ordinances.
The changes, which won’t go into effect until 90 days after the second reading, include eliminating the multiple restraint districts across the county.
County Attorney Jim Fortune said earlier this month that the changes strike about five sections of the existing ordinance and replace those sections with the recommendations from the Animal Care & Control Advisory Board. In a 4-1 vote, the commissioners voted Monday to make the changes, with only Commissioner Bob Gilreath opposed.
