ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER SEEKS ZONING TO BE A PET DEALER AND OPERATE AN ANIMAL KENNEL

An application for a zoning variance has been filed for the residence of the County Animal Control Officer to allow a Pet Dealer and Animal Kennel. As TWG reported a month ago, there are kennels behind the residence of the Animal Control Officer.

TWG questioned whether the Animal Control officer had a license to have kennels. Georgia Department of Agriculture records obtained through open records last month show no license for the existing kennels at this address. There appears to be some zoning issues and a zoning exception has been applied for.

The Zoning hearing will be held this Thursday, May 25, at 7:00p.m. at the Zoning office (across the street from the Courthouse). The legal ad run in the Monticello News for the zoning request follows:

Application 2006SE01, owner Levi Head, applicant Elizabeth Rolfe request for a Special Exception on 13 acres to allow Pet Dealer/Animal Kennel this tract is located at 246 Roper Road. This tract is shown as parcel 72 on tax map 10.

TWG questions whether there is a conflict for the County Animal Control officer to also be a Pet Dealer.

What kind of kennels will be run? Will the officer be paid to “house animals” as some people in the county are being paid to do? These kind of issues need to be resolved before any zoning action is granted.

Your chance to comment will be Thursday, May 25, at 7:00 p.m.
