ACCORDING TO SAN MARCOS CETI :
Melissa Millecam, the public press contact for City of San Marcos, said today there was NO formal action to stop animal chipping, only discussion.
The City Council will hold another meeting to address the issue again March 31, 2009. The changes to city ordinance are expected to overturn mandated pet chipping to voluntary or delay implementation of microchipping until April 1, 2009. The City Council is sending this issue back to the Animal Services Advisory Board to discuss the issue again and report back.
City Hall plans to notify the public when they will hold the next public hearings on animal chipping. Melissa also stated the public/citizen voices were heard loud and clear. She mentioned that a lot of people spoke at the meeting and voiced their opinions contributing to an ongoing dialogue with the Mayor, council members and staff.
