Cost of stray dogs

Carla Bloomfield made this Freedom of Information request to Halton Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Halton Borough Council,

I am contacting you to request the following information regarding
stray dogs.

How much was the budget that covers everything in dealing with stray dogs, for the year 2014, if your financial year runs from January to December or 2013/2014 if it runs April to March?

How much will the budget be for 2015? (or 2014/2015)

If you do not have these figures:-

What was the cost of dealing with stray dogs in the years 2012 and 2013 or 2012/2013 and 2013/2014? (see above re financial years)

If it is on a, for example, five year contract, how much was the cost of the last one?

Do you sanction the act of your dog warden/s (or any person contracted to deal with stray dogs) to collect unwanted dogs from the owners property (hand overs) as opposed to when they are actually in the act of straying?

Yours faithfully,

Carla Bloomfield

Dear Halton Borough Council,

My request was made on the 1st November 2014 and was subsequently sent to two different email addresses.
After an online inquiry, which wasnt answered, I asked on your Facebook page and was given the same email address which one of the requests was sent to.

Yours faithfully,

Carla Bloomfield

Information Governance Service, Halton Borough Council

Dear Carla

Further to your enquiry to Halton Direct Link, I can confirm your FOI request was first received in this office on 13th February 2015 and therefore has been logged and allocated as received on that date and is being processed by the appropriate department.

Please note that on looking at the record on the WhatDoTheyKnow website, it appears that there was an error with your request on 1st November as the history shows the message could not be sent and therefore it was not received at that time. Following your message via Facebook, we did add an annotation to the record explaining this on the WhatDoTheyKnow website, as we do not have an alternative contact email address for you, however this message does not appear on the history.
