Culver City Observer

Letters to the Editor
I don't get it. Where there is a will, there is a way. Where is the will of our Culver City Council to help ensure the health and safety of our residents regarding animal issues? Our Council appears to have turned deaf ears and blind eyes to the presentations, signed petitions and anecdotal material from Culver City residents and Friends of Culver City Animals (FCCA), all urging the employment of a local Animal Control Officer to offset the delays, dangers and inconveniences associated with the dependence on the L.A. County Animal Control Officers' responses and the Carson animal shelter located sixteen miles south of us. And yet our Council voted to spend $85,000 for a temporary public art installation on Washington Boulevard.
What is our Council's objection to hiring a local Animal Control Officer? It surely can't be money. Where is the will? I don't get it!
