State law requires that the board meet at least three (3) times a year, however, the board is currently meeting at least once a month. The meetings are open to the public and provide a public comment period at the beginning of each meeting. Citizens are encouraged to attend and directly address the Animal Advisory Board with any concerns.
The creation of the Animal Advisory board is directed by state law and was expanded in 2017. Appointments to the board are made by membership requirements and qualifications as required by state law and City Ordinance.
