Kane animal control officer is eliminated

October 8, 2012

The Kane Borough Council agreed Monday to terminate its part-time animal control officer-- Karen Klaiber-- and its holding kennel.
Beginning today, Kane residents are urged to contact the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Bradford to report to stray cats and dogs.
Councilman Harold Hallberg, chairman of council's Public Safety Committee, said an analysis shows that the borough is spending more than $7,000 a year on animal control.
This includes the pay for Klaiber and the cost of food and maintenance at the cage-like holding kennel at the Kinzua sewage treatment plant off Route 321.
Hallberg said there will be "no cost" to the borough when residents call the SPCA for assistance with stray cats and dogs.
