Crowd Sends Board Meeting Outside

Madisonville, KY – A large crowd, including three regional television stations, prompted the Hopkins County Humane Society Board to conduct their meeting outside today. Board president Judy Lacy has faced criticism for the county's high animal euthanasia rate and what officials see as a lack of cooperation. At today's meeting, Lacy says the board discussed ways to lower euthanasia rates, including setting up a website. They did not discuss a county proposal to build a new facility. Magistrate Tim Riggs, who represents local government on the board, had said he would call for Lacy's resignation, but the topic was not brought up. The next board meeting is mid-September.
