The Animal Control Division of the Public Works Department is responsible for protecting the general public from animal-related threats. In addition to that, we remove dead animals located within City limits and address all animal related issues and problems throughout the City, including minor nuisances.


The Animal Control Officer can be reached by contacting Sharon Coker at (601)469-2251. Sharon will contact Gaylon and have him get in touch with you at your residence or at his office which is located above Colbert Commons.
