WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Waterloo is considering whether to take over animal control services after 17 years of outsourcing.
The City Council is set to vote Monday on a plan that would hire more employees and assume all animal control duties instead of splitting them with the Cedar Bend Humane Society.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/16goDKx ) the Humane Society wants the city to take over all the services or give the group an exclusive contract. It says the split arrangement has confused Waterloo residents.
City officials have projected that they can provide the same services at a lower cost, and are in talks to also handle services for Cedar Falls.
The Humane Society has provided animal control services for Waterloo since 1996, but the city cut back its contract last August.
