Sylvania City Council’s safety committee requests public comment at its next meeting, 6:45 p.m. June 2, on a proposed ordinance to forbid residents to feed stray cats.
Recommended by Doug Haynam, the proposal takes the current nuisance code pertaining to wildlife and stray animals a step further, prohibiting people from feeding stray cats, dogs, deer, geese, or raccoons. The draft legislation was created to establish fines against those who habitually feed cats, officials said.
