After a number of years of paying thousands of dollars to the Boone County Health Department’s Animal Control, the City of Ashland went two years without an agreement for animal control.

But in the past couple of years, City Administrator Lyn Woolford has worked with Animal Control to provide services at a reasonable cost to the city.

“This bill and lower rate is due to a collaborative effort at negotiations by Boone County Commissioner Fred Parry and the city,” said Woolford.

In a recent report to the city’s Board of Aldermen, Woolford said that in the reporting period of June through August, 2018, there were a total of seven calls and four complaints delivered to animal control which cost the City of Ashland $692.18.
