The City recently proposed revisions to Chapter 5 of the City Code (animal related ordinances), which included changes regarding free-roaming cats that were to be presented to City Council for approval on Sept. 1. A vigorous letter-writing campaign urged by No Kill proponents and animal welfare activists such as Alley Cat Allies was conducted and a peaceful protest organized by the Hailey Foundation was staged at City Hall on Aug. 31. The proposed changes were removed from the City Council's agenda, but are still being discussed by City officials.
