We are changing speakers for the February 2nd Boosters meeting. We had planned to have Argenta CDC speak about Home Ownership but after discussing it with the CDC we felt it more important to address the school board Millage vote & the stray dog issue. We will have a speakers to address both the millage & someone from NLR Animal Shelter about the strays. Please try to attend.
We will have the Argenta CDC speak about Homeownership in March.

Here are the links addressing the school millage vote on Feb.14th.

Argenta's Stray Dogs

I have been in touch with NLR Animal Shelter & they have given me some directions for the neighborhood. If you see a pack of dogs or any strays please call Animal Shelter @ 791-8577. If it is after hours the answering machine will pick up & give you an emergency phone number, call that number(its the police) & report the dogs. They will be in touch with the shelter or an officer will pick up the dogs. The police have a key to an emergency kennel & can drop off the dogs.
I was told animal control did patrol the area last evening but did not see any strays. I passed on information that the dogs were seen entering the rail yard north of 7th st. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me or the Animal Shelter.
