Town considering request to honour longtime animal control officer at Truro dog park

The Town of Truro is looking to honour a longtime animal control officer for the Municipality of Colchester County who died in a two-vehicle collision last month.

An email to the town suggested something in the memory of Elsie DeBay at the dog park.

CAO Mike Dolter says the idea is to install a bench in the park with a plaque placed on it.

Mayor Bill Mills says DeBay had a "unique talent for dealing with dogs", adding he and council were very appreciative of her and her work.

Council held a moment of silence for DeBay at Monday's meeting.
