(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Stand outside in downtown Lawrenceburg yelling “here kitty” and it may not be long before you have a new furry friend.
The City of Lawrenceburg wants to reduce the number of stray cats roaming its streets. During Monday’s city council meeting, members discussed an ordinance aimed at reducing the stray population.
Council members said that often times residents will leave out food for cats they don’t own.
Mayor Bill Cunningham suggested starting a program where strays are caught, then spayed or neutered, and released back into the city streets.
Clerk-Treasurer Jackie Stutz will research similar ordinances in other cities before Lawrenceburg considers writing one of their own. Building Inspector Carl Fryman will speak with Dearborn County Animal Control.
