(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The City of Lawrenceburg is still looking to tame its problem with stray cats in the downtown area.
At their July 19 meeting, City Council began discussing an ordinance that would help the city deal with the growing stray problem. Mayor Bill Cunningham proposed an ordinance to allow the city to catch the strays, have them spayed or neutered, then released.
Cunningham said at the Aug. 2 council meeting that city officials have been reviewing similar ordinances that other cities have, however, most refer to cats who have owners.
An ordinance could be put together for council to consider later his month.
In the meantime, volunteers with Dearborn County P.A.W.S. have been working to catch some of the strays on the east side of town.
