Preston animal control officer Jed Fellows tendered his resignation to the city council Monday and it was accepted.
Fellows has worked in the part-time position for 23 years and was not at the council meeting. Preston Police Chief Val Sparrow said Fellows listed personal reasons for leaving the position.
It is unclear at this time whether the city will hire a replacement for Fellows or use existing patrol officers.
Sparrow told the council the city will utilize existing veterinarians when dogs and other animals have to be euthanized.
“We will follow this procedure until we get someone else trained in that aspect of the animal-control job,” he said.
Sparrow said the city still plans to use Fellows as a reserve officer when needed.
In other action during the very short meeting, the council:
• authorized the destruction of old city records, a routine procedure.
• approved business licenses for Shane Pitcher, 340 N. 100 East, Country Gourmet Home; and Redbox Automated Retail, 217 S. State, DVD Rental
