Falkland residents are being asked if they want to bring stray dogs under control.

A meeting will be held July 25 at 7 p.m. at the Falkland Community Hall the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District’s proposed dog control service.

“I’ve had a lot of phone calls and complaints about dogs,” said director Rene Talbot.

“We’re going to have a community meeting to give people information and see what they have to say and go from there.”

The estimated cost of service would be $14.18 annually per household.

“If there is sufficient support at the community meeting, the CSRD will move forward with a public assent process,” said Talbot.
