Consultation has concluded

Tell us how you think the Rural City of Murray Bridge could better encourage and enable responsible cat ownership in our community.

The Rural City of Murray Bridge is undertaking a review of cat management in the Council area, and is asking the community to provide feedback through an online survey.

The review and consultation will help Council to understand community expectations, concerns and guide future approaches to cat management and responsible cat ownership.

General Manager Community Development Kristen Manson said this feedback would guide the formation of recommendations to support responsible cat ownership.
"This consultation is about understanding what responsible cat ownership looks like in our Rural City," she said.
"It involves examining how things are now, what some of the issue are and how they might be managed and what role Council may be able to play in that.
"This survey is an opportunity for the community to help shape our services by providing valuable input through the community engagement process.
"Cats are a significant part of our community and provide love and companionship for their owners, and it is essential that we provide safe homes for them and minimise the negative impacts on our neighbours, wildlife and our environment."

The survey asks about the number of cats owned, desexing and microchipping status, feeding habits and cat complaints.
Respondents are also asked to provide detail of any cat related issues, solutions and preferred management options.

To provide your feedback please fill out the Cat Management Survey HERE.

Printed copies of the survey are available at the Local Government Centre and Murray Bridge Library.

Consultation is open for three weeks and will close 5pm on Monday 19 July 2021.
