EXETER â€“ In a unanimous vote Tuesday night, following a hearing in the Exeter Public Library, the town council passed an ordinance placing management of the animal shelter under the department of public works (DPW).
The measure amends sections 10-1 and 10-36 of Chapter 10 of the code as they apply to the shelterâ€™s administration, personnel and other matters, including policy. The Director of Public Works (DPW) will oversee day-to-day operations as well as tackling the big picture of restoring the facilityâ€™s once-sterling reputation.
