Warren County Animal Control is once again advertising for a new director as well as one part-time worker.Kim Pettrey has been working alone at Animal Control on Paws Lane since Aug. 2 when former director Tammy Webb was put on administrative leave and then fired following the arrest of her son, Jonathan Ewell Smith, and the arrest of herself, for allegedly growing marijuana on Animal Control property.County Executive John Pelham wanted things to settle down for a couple months before hiring a new director. Pettrey, in the meantime, has been working full-time, many weeks logging over 45 hours and handling the duties once taken care of by the former director.Health and Welfare Committee chairwoman Sally Brock said, “It’s not fair to Kim she is the only one at Animal Control. I don’t feel good doing this to her.”According to Pettrey, she has not had a day off in four months.
