SALISBURY- Officials in Wicomico County are seeking input from multiple entities to restore and repurpose the former Dog Ordinance Review Committee, which will soon address issues regarding animal welfare.
In an open work session last week, Council President John Cannon asked councilmembers to suggest ideas for a new animal committee.
“We are trying to get some input from the council and maybe their thoughts for establishing a committee similar to what was done a few years back,” he said.
Councilman Joe Holloway said the county established the Dog Ordinance Review Committee years ago after a dog mauled and injured a young man in Willards. Committee members at the time, Cannon said, were tasked with providing recourse and rules that would protect residents from further dog attacks.
