The new animal control officer in Godfrey won’t likely forget her first day on the job.  A little after 8:00am Monday, she received a call out from the Mayor’s Office about a dead deer near Clifton Terrace.  By the end of the day, she had picked up two more. 

And Susie Stephan did it, according to Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick, without the help of any special equipment.

There is a new telephone number for the office, as the retiring animal control officer owned the old number and offered to sell it to the village for $1,000 – an offer that was declined.  You can reach Stephan at 466-5211, or through an e-mail listed at this story at
