Don't feed stray cats in Poseyville

It's now illegal to feed stray cats on public property in Poseyville.

A new ordinance, which was approved Thursday, also makes it illegal to feed strays on private property without the property owner's permission.

Town Council President Bruce Baker says he had received many complaints about stray cats. Baker says they were creating a public health hazard.

The ordinance will go into effect next week. People who violate it will be ticketed and fined $25.
