Borgerâ€™s city manager Eddie Edwards continued to address the concerns brought before the city regarding its new animal ordinance at the regular meeting of the Borger City Council last Tuesday.
One of the concerns brought up by citizens was that taxpaying pet owners were going to have less due process than people who receive welfare fraudulently or those who are convicted felons. He said due process has different meanings under different circumstances.
