My Continuing Endorsement of the Animal Shelter Plan for Phillips County, Arkansas

Dear City Council Members,

I received a call on Friday from Doug Friedlander from the Chamber of Commerce, who has been working with a countywide coalition of elected officials (of which I was previously a part and in which capacity Mayor Willis now participates) that have put together a proposal for a countywide animal control effort that I believe is on the agenda for this tonight's meeting.

I understand that one of the proposals is to for Helena-West Helena to pay its share of the dues necessary to operate the facility through an in-kind provision of staff and equipment. This is a proposal that I made while Mayor and which I still endorse.

I have also been told that some of the partners in this proposal will be hosting an information session and reception to answer your questions prior to the council meeting at 5:15pm this Tuesday in the district court room next door the council chamber. I hope you are able to make time to attend that session to have your questions answered. Either way, this is a worthy project and I hope you will give it due consideration when it comes before you on tonight.

Thanks very much,

James F. Valley, Attorney
