Cat reg­is­tra­tions

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Re­gional Coun­cil has re­solved to con­tinue with cat reg­is­tra­tions, de­spite be­ing given the chance by the State Gov­ern­ment to “opt out”. In­for­ma­tion pro­vided to coun­cil­lors at Tues­day’s or­di­nary meet­ing showed the es­ti­mated cost to Coun­cil of deal­ing with cat com­plaints in the 2012-13 pe­riod was about $58k. It was there­fore con­sid­ered that con­tin­u­ing to reg­is­ter cats would sup­port the costs in im­ple­ment­ing Coun­cil’s an­i­mal man­age­ment laws in a way that was con­sis­tent with com­mu­nity ex­pec­ta­tions and pro­tected an­i­mal wel­fare.
