Mayors concerned about reorg effort

Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam has concerns about the impact the reorganization of the Department of Agriculture will have on the island's mayors. Executive Director Angel Sablan says the Council understands that the Animal Section is being disbanded as part of the Calvo Administration's reorganization efforts. 

Sablan says this means village mayors will be left to deal with the numerous calls for stray animals and roadkill, telling KUAM News, "And if you do away with the Animal Control Section, then who's going to take care of all the stray animals and the dead dogs and cats and whatever we find on the roads? The mayors are tired being the ones that are called every single day to be told to pick up a dead animal on the road. It's not their job and certainly having no place to put them or to take them or to call it's going to be a big challenge."

Mayors are trying to determine what government entity will take over the animal control responsibilities as they say they are unable and ill equipped to handle it.
