Bradley County Commissioner Charlotte Peak-Jones told the commission Monday that when the Bradley County SPCA shelter reaches capacity, they legally cannot take any additional animals.
Because of this, she said a waiting list would open every time the shelter was full. However, she said, typically, the wait was no longer than a week.
During the Monday afternoon meeting, several amendments to the budget were also approved. By a motion from Commissioner Ed Elkins, a motion was also passed to reinstate $140,348 in grant money to the grantees.
Motions appointing Dewayne Thompson to the Audit Committee and Bill Burch to a three year Library Board term also passed.
A discussion was held regarding retiring police officers being able to keep their service weapons, and a motion was passed allowing the upcoming retiring officers to do so.
It was also pointed out that it was customary to let them keep their badge and gun holster as well.
