Murrysville renews annual deal with Hoffman Kennels

Gary Hoffman will continue to provide animal-control service in Murrysville.

Council last week renewed its annual contract with Hoffman Kennels, a Delmont-based animal-control group that has provided animal-control services since 2001.

However, officials will pay more for Hoffman's services.

Hoffman requested an increase of $10 per month for his services and an addition $5 per call that he responds to beyond business hours.

Murrysville will pay Hoffman $4,400 in 2014.

Hoffman's services came under fire in 2012 after residents in several communities complained about how the kennel handled animals and how Hoffman interacted with pet owners.

His contract was renewed after Murrysville officials visited the kennel.
