Williamsville, NY - The Village of Williamsville may consider a new law that would protect and enhance the safety of cats that have no owners and wander around the Village.
Monday, the Village Board discussed whether to model the new ordinance after the one that was recently passed in Buffalo.
It's known as a "TNVR Ordinance." That stands for trap, neuter, vaccinate and release.
Village leadership wants to deal with the large number of cats in a responsible way.
"I saw this as a way to deal with the problem, including spaying and neutering to control our population in a humane way that keeps them in the community," says Deputy Mayor Christopher Duquin.
If the board chooses to move forward with the idea, a public hearing will be scheduled in the near future.
