The turn-out for the first Budget Hearing held May 18th was impressive. Almost half of those testifying were there to express their dissatisfaction with MCAS and demand that County officials make a change.
The most compelling testimony was a story from a local citizen about his beloved cat who fell into the grip of Multnomah County Animal Services only to be killed before the standard waiting period was over. On the document MCAS provided to him upon his request, he alleges that MCAS staff moved the date of death five days forward to hide the agency’s liability.
THIS IS JUST ONE OF MANY STORIES REPORTED TO GSP ABOUT MCAS’ INCOMPETENCE AND COMPLACENCY!
PLEASE HELP INSURE THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!
