The Animal Services Advisory Board will hold a public hearing July 22 to receive comments about limited microchipping of impounded animals and restrictions on certain animal sales in San Marcos.
The board meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. with the hearing set for 6 p.m. in Room 1 at the Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins.
The public is invited to offer their opinions about a proposal being considered by the Animal Services Advisory Board to require microchipping of dogs and cats if they are impounded for a second time at the Animal Shelter.
The proposal would apply only to animals that have been picked up a second time by Animal Control before they are released back to their owners.
The hearing also invites public comment on a proposed rule that would prohibit sales of animals on a roadside, public right-of-way, commercial parking lots and flea markets.
The provision would not prohibit the sale or purchase of animals from a person’s private residence, display of animals at a city-sponsored event, or by a licensed commercial animal establishment.
For information, call the Animal Services department at (512) 805-2650.
