Until our Dec. 18th council meeting, hours on the front door read 8-6 Mon-Fri and 9-6 Sat –Sun.
After the meeting they began publishing “hours were by appointment.” When I did my public comments that night I brought to their attention their new website and media releases were contradictory to what the public facility has been for 3 years and asked why. Never given an answer. Today they scraped all hours off the door. No notice, no transparency, just seems to be how they deal with situations they don’t want to deal with.
They are strong-arming the volunteer force, probably throwing Juan under the bus, and dismantling the volunteer program. But they claim to “want to save dogs.” It’s hard to save and adopt dogs when no one can come to the shelter without an appointment. This is unprecedented and an obvious choice to show power and control.
Still putting personalities and egos before policies.
Take note citizens of Missouri City. When we all started bringing things to their attention, they got angry. They didn’t want to spend money or man-hours on the shelter.
We don’t want a kill shelter on Scanlin Road. Yell it loudly and let your rep that you voted for know this issue isn’t going away.
