Davenport reaches tentative agreement with humane society


The city of Davenport would continue receiving services from the Humane Society of Scott County, under a new agreement.

At Wednesday's city council meeting, Alderwoman Jazmin Newton said the city reached a tentative agreement with the humane society.

It was considering creating its own animal services department, after the humane society said it couldn't continue providing services without a significant funding increase.

Next month, the city council will review the contract for approval.
