Rupert Could Hire New Animal Control Officers
Rupert, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Earlier this month, the city of Rupert took over managing Animal Control for Minidoka County. That includes the animal control facility in Paul.
As a result of the increased responsibility, the city planned to hire two animal control officers, one full time and one part time.
Rupert city administrator Kelly Anthon says those two people could work just over 70 hours a week without costing the city any additional money.
Rupert chips in more than $35,000 dollars a year for animal control. The city of Paul, along with the tiny towns of Acequia and Minidoka, provide the rest of the animal control budget.
