At tonight’s Plainfield Board of Selectman meeting discussions were held regarding the town’s animal control and it’s elimination in favor of privatizing animal control efforts through the Northeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, or NECCOG for short, an organization that serves a 16 town area, and one it’s services is animal control.

Paul Sweet was quoted in saying that turning over to NECCOG was a “done deal” and that it was right for the town’s budget, then Mr. Sweet stated later on that it was in proposal state currently, and not final.

The budget proposal still has to go before the Board of Finance for approval, then town meeting before residents would eventually vote at a referendum.  The next Plainfield Board of Finance meeting is this Wednesday, all residents are urged to attend.
