UPDATE: Board votes to suspend animal officials accused of neglect

By  | 

INGHAM COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) -- The Ingham County Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday night to suspend Ingham Co. Animal Control And Shelter Director John Dinon and Deputy Director Anne Burns with pay.

The board meeting was scheduled for 6:30 Tuesday night and the public had a chance to weigh in before the scheduled vote.

Things got heated when the public weighed in at a committee hearing two weeks ago. That's when a panel voted to recommend shelter director John Dinon and Deputy Director Anne Burns be suspended.

This comes after News 10 broke the story about cases of abuse and neglect at the shelter.
