Area C residents vote on dog control Saturday

Voters in Area C will have more than one decision to make this Saturday. Aside from electing a new representative to replace outgoing director Larry Houley, residents will also have to vote on whether or not to create a dog control service in the district. Current area C director Larry Houley says in his nine years in the position, dog control has been one of the most frequent requests from the public. 

Houley cites 2 incidents in the past few years where dangerous dogs at large in the Charlie Lake area threatened children at the elementary school and patrons at the nearby general store. These incidents had to be dealt with by the RCMP.

Houley says he’s personally in favour of the service, but he also understands that others in less populated areas may not feel the same way. [asset|aid=615|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=e2734180daf25482b380b962381989e9-Houley – kids_1_Pub.mp3]

The service would come at a price—a fee assessed at a function of property tax. However, Houley says this average cost per household for the service would be just under $20.
