City of Commerce expects good report from SPCA animal shelter inspection

Nov 6, 2014

Commerce City Manager Marc Clayton says an inspector representing the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) visited the shelter and gave positive comments to Clayton, with a favorable formal report expected soon.  Following the recent controversy concerning the shelter, a complaint had been filed.  Mayor Dr. John Ballotti acknowledges that he made an error in not allowing citizens to speak concerning the shelter at the council's most recent meeting, and says if they appear at the next meeting, November 18, they'll be allowed to speak.
