One by one, villagers spoke up during the April 26 Village Council meeting’s Corraleños Forum to demand that Animal Control functions be transferred from the Police Department to the Fire Department.  Neither the police chief nor the fire chief spoke publicly to say they like the idea that was broached earlier this year by the founder of Companion Animal Rescue and Medical Assistance (CARMA), Barbara Bayer, who addressed the mayor and council again at the April 26 meeting.

Patti Flanagan said she spoke for Corrales Horse and Mule People(CHAMP) which would like to see the Animal Services Division be managed within the Fire Department.

Former Village Councillor Melanie Scholer explained why she liked the idea as well.
