Humboldt, Iowa — The Humboldt City City Council approved the hiring of Merri Hansen as the City Animal Control officer.

Hansen had already been acting as the animal control officer for the county and the contract looks very similar, said City Administrator Travis Goedken.

Hansen will receive $30 per animal and .50 cents of mileage. The cost will be covered by a $50 impoundment fee that will be levied on the animal’s owner.

Goedken explained that their could be other fees assessed to the owner during that process.
