"Declaring that “City Hall and city businesses are no place for animals,” Councilman Elzie Clements led what Browser’s fans call a sneak attack on June 14, ending in a 2-1 vote giving the former shelter cat 30 days to find a new home. “This is not just a cat, it’s like a family pet,” said Browser fan and former Councilman Alan Price, saying the cat’s fans “will petition for an election if we need to — we’ll take this to November. I don’t think that will be any problem.”"
"Mayor Ron White, a nonvoting council moderator under the city charter, supports Browser. He blamed pettiness at City Hall because a city employee wasn’t allowed to keep a pet at work."
"White said he wants the council to reconsider at a July 12 meeting, when Browser will be two days short of removal. And if not then? “You know, we have an election coming up in November,” he said."
I'm actually not a fan of libraries having cats, but a surprise vote is not the way to deal with the situation.
I'm a big library cat fan, personally. I hope they can get this turned around
I hope they get this sorted out soon, too. I'm just LOLing at the pettiness because this is sooooo typical of small-town politics.
I work with two people with severe cat allergies and we have patrons with allergies. I wouldn't want to lose them because of a cat, and I like cats.
