A group of local citizens is forming a group to attempt to help deal to address the problem of abandoned and abused animals in the county.“We recently met with a group of people who want to assist with an animal control project, providing maybe the county and the city and the other towns could all go together and help solve the problem,” County Mayor Mike Foster announced at Monday night’s meeting of the county commission.“There's a lot of work to be done on this, but at least we have a group who wants to begin talks, so that maybe we can come up with a facility and a plan of operation,” the mayor said. “We met with some people who are interested in forming a humane society. I think it's preliminary, and we do need to have a lot of discussion about it.
