1. Animal Control
ordinance/policies: The committee discussed amending the current
ordinance to address the number of animals that can legally be kept
on a property. State law allows possession of less than six
breedable female dogs without a license. Logan County currently
follows this regulation. Additional discussion will take place on
this topic next month.
bids: One submission from Landmark Ford was received from the
advertisement for vehicle bids for Animal Control. It contained two
options. Option 1 includes air conditioning, windows, power
doors/windows and cruise control for $21,478. Option 2 is the base
model with only the addition of air conditioning for $20,121.
Landmark has also offered $1500.00 trade-in value for the current
truck. A motion was made by Mr. Ruben, seconded by Mr.
Martin, to approve the purchase of option 1, including a trade-in of
$1500.00. Mr. Bateman abstained. Motion passed.
