Salem Completes Purchase of New Animal Control Building
Gruen says no timetable has yet been set to begin animal control services. He reports the city still has to purchase kennels, a washer and dryer and other items for operation of the shelter. Gruen feels the building is set up perfectly for animal runs.
He's repeating his promise the city should not be underestimated in its plans to be a good neighbor. One resident who lives near the shelter location has been outspoken about how it will adversely effect his family.
Gruen has previously told the city council he feels animal control services can be provided within the $80,000 a year the city currently has budgeted. He anticipates the city hiring one full time person to oversee the pound and serve as animal control officer and a part-time person to assist. Gruen says at least one person will be at the shelter daily to care for the animals.
