BRUNSWICK, Ga. - A city on Georgia's coast is turning over its animal control responsibilities to county officials.
The city of Brunswick will be getting out of the animal control business as of Tuesday, the start of 2013.
The Florida Times-Union reports that the Glynn County Animal Control Center will take over animal control duties within the city limits.
The new arrangement is part of a local option sales tax agreement worked out last month between the city and Glynn County.
Brunswick police Officer Todd Rhodes advises city residents to call the Animal Control Center at if they have complaints about stray or dangerous animals. If an injured animal is found after business hours, residents should call Brunswick police, who will contact the on-call animal officer.
