Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
At the March Borough Council meeting Councilman Jared Brennan said he has received telephone calls and e-mails from the Delaware County Animal Control about unpaid bills totaling $9,500.
“It’s to the point where they are talking about legal action,” Brennan said.
Berger said the borough was being charged for animals that are not from Ridley Park and until the mix-up is resolved, the bills will not be paid.
He said there were instances where the borough was billed for animals picked up in other municipalities, and there were billing errors. “We are not going to be strong armed or threatened,” Berger said.
Borough Manager Dawn Marie Human said the matter has been settled with the animal agency settling for one-half of the billed charges. She cited one instance where the borough was billed for an animal that was picked up in Darby Borough.
