City Agrees to New Contract for Community Cat Care PDF E-mail

The city of West Carrollton has agreed to a new contract with the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center that will allow community cats to be spayed or neutered and returned to the site where they were found.

For the past several years, the city has contracted with the Animal Resource Center to collect stray animals. However, this is the first year for participation in the community cat spay/neuter/release program.

The Animal Resource Center is applying for a grant from PetSmart to offset the additional costs of the spay/neuter program.

West Carrollton residents who use the program and bring in a stray cat to the Animal Resource Center, 6790 Webster St., in Dayton, will be charged $10 per male or $15 per female cat. The city will pay up to $20/25 for each community cat which is collected and processed at the center. However, it will receive a $15 credit for each cat that is adopted or accepted by its owner.

Last year, the city paid $7,200 to the Animal Resource Center for community cat care.

City's Longest Serving Employee Retires PDF E-mail

Tom ScarboroughLieutenant Tom Scarborough, who has served as a volunteer or part-time on-call firefighter since Nov. 2, 1970, retired at the end of 2013.

He will be recognized for his 43 years of service with a reception at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Fire Station 1, and during the city council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Civic Center.

Scarborough followed his father, Paul, into the fire service and spent approximately five years working alongside him. Joining the department was “just something that I had always wanted to do,” he said.

“When I first got on, we didn’t wear air packs,” Scarborough said. “Those were just for the young kids,” he said. “It seemed like it was nothing to go in, fight the fire, come out and smoke a cigarette, and go back in,” he said. Scarborough said he never picked up the smoking habit.

He said that the city’s ambulance service use to be a ‘load and go’ type service. However, Scarborough became one of the city’s first six trained paramedics in 1976. More extensive training for department employees is just one of many aspects of the fire department that has changed during the past four decades.
