OLEAN — It will be some time before the Olean Common Council makes any decision on the city’s ties to the SPCA of Cattaraugus County.
During the council’s Finance Committee meeting Tuesday night, committee head Jim Brady, R-Ward 1, announced that in the coming months, he and fellow city lawmakers plan to review the annual third-party audits of the SPCA, dating back to 2008. In addition, Mr. Brady said he plans to examine the monthly reports of the number of calls the SPCA responds to.
Mr. Brady’s announcement comes after animal rights activists recently petitioned city officials to terminate Olean’s two-year, $120,000 agreement for local animal control.
