Wawa Without Animal Control Officer

Wawa is once again without an official animal control officer - but the Municipality's assuring concerns will be addressed.

A notice on the municipal website advises the position is currently vacant, with the contract for animal control services now under review.

Kevin Sabourin - the Assistant Director of Protective Services - says the review will look at various aspects of the agreement before a call is put out for expressions of interest, which he expects will take "a couple of months".

In the meantime, Sabourin assures that he will address calls usually made to the animal control officer - the phone number's 705-856-2244, extension 228 - though the municipality's emphasizing that owners are responsible for control of their dogs on their own property and should ensure their dog is kept on a leash at all times.
