Board May Turn Over Animal Control

Madisonville, KY – The Hopkins County Humane Society board may turn over animal control duties to the county. The Madisonville Messenger reports board president Judy Lacy plans to introduce a resolution at tomorrow's meeting that would eliminate the society's animal control program. The county would then have to take over responsibilities. Hopkins Judge-Executive Donnie Carroll previously said if the society discontinued animal control, the county would divert its funding to build and operate a new shelter. Tomorrow the board also considers the county's offer to build a new shelter and changes to its bylaws.
