Springfield City Commissioners were able to settle several items on their agenda fairly quickly Tuesday afternoon, as well as clear up some confusion over a bill they owe Bay County Animal Control.
Springfield is late on one payment to the animal control, and city officials said it was for $17,000.
They also owe their current bill which is right around $19,000.
Officials said they pay close to $20,000 each quarter to the county for animal control.
That money goes towards housing the animals, pick up, and around the clock staff.
But city officials said Tuesday that they want an audit to check in on how much money is really being used.
"I have not seen animal control here very often,” said Mayor Ralph Hammond. “I have concerns about where the animals are being picked up at and how long they're being sheltered."
Springfield pays for the animals to be sheltered for up to 5 days.
