"There’s nobody to complain to, everybody passes the buck.” -Dale Scott
Ms. Scott is addressing the Coatesville City Council at the “Citizen’s Comments” session. Dale Scott is the former Animal Control Officer of the City of Coatesville. She was given an offer by Mr. Walker to come back as a sub-contractor. She said was compelled by contract to refuse.
Ms. Scott said that the Coatesville Police Department has taken calls from Coatesville residents and is telling them to contact the SPCA. The SPCA does not have a contract with the city. They will only come into Coatesville for an “injured animal”.
“Due the large amount of calls because people are telling them to call the SPCA and say it’s injured because the police have no other alternative, there’re not going into Coatesville period. So if there is an animal hit by a car, who’s going to help that animal? Because now Coatesville has cried wolf so many times; who’s going to come out and help them?” What is anybody going to do? Does anyone care?”...
"My issue and the way that I see it; I was let go for political reasons and not budgetary reasons. Which to me, is pretty sad. Because, everybody here should be here for the city. They should not be here for their own political agenda or their self, Everybody here should be here for the city and the City residents. And they’re not.
And I can’t sit here and say, you, you, you; but everybody knows who they are and what they represent."
Ben Bruton of Coatesville had a similar issue with feral cats on his property. He also talked about possible noise from events and kids on dirt bikes.
