One thousand dollars is too much to pay for a phone number, according to Godfrey Village trustees. That is how much Mayor Mike McCormick says the outgoing animal control officer wants to part with his number. A new person will be taking over animal control officer duties soon.
The position of Animal Control Officer requires that person to be self-contained, owning all of the equipment to do the job. Until now, that equipment also included the phone. Trustee Jerry Gibson doesn’t think keeping the old number is a priority.

With a new number apparently coming to the office, trustees agree the village should own the number going forward. Once a new number has been obtained, it will be publicized through many platforms, including the front page of the village’s website.
