Longview, TX — Longview Mayor Jay Dean reminded members of the city’s animal shelter task force on Wednesday to stay on task during the newly-appointed group’s third weekly meeting.
“The committee has to stay focused on developing a long-term solution,” Dean said. “I want this committee to move forward with a recommendation sooner than later.”
The mayor’s comments came after the city signed a one-year contract with the Humane Society of Northeast Texas this past Thursday.
“The Humane Society contract is now in place,” Dean said. “It is not perfect, but we did not have a lot of options.”
Moving forward, Dean said the group should remember the focus at hand is ultimately to provide better care to the animals.
