The Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners renewed its animal control service agreement with the Lehigh County Humane Society for 2012.
“They’re the only game in town; there are no alternatives,” said Township Manager Randy Soriano.
“Is this a service the township needs to provide?,” Soriano asked commissioners at their Dec. 22 board meeting.
Salisbury Township Animal Control Officer Charles Durner brought 58 animals to the shelter in 2011, Soriano said. It was unknown how many township residents brought.
The board stipulated that the agency provide a letter of insurance and an account of how it calculates its fees.
