LNP – Always Lancaster editorial: “Cats are key to erasing rabies problem here” – “Stop feeding feral cats. If you see them in your neighborhood, call a local animal organization, such as Pet Pantry of Lancaster County, which operates feral cat trapneuter- vaccinate-return clinics. And consider making a donation toward TNR programs. Another possible solution is requiring some form of identification for pet cats (such as a tag) to be worn at all times, the way Rhode Island does, so it’s easy to distinguish between an unvaccinated stray and a cared-for pet. And whenever possible, pet cats should also be kept indoors.”


The Borough Council’s Community Development Committee has no meeting agendas nor minutes posted in 2018 to date.
