ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Citizen's Advisory Committee continues to talk about ways to control Albany's stray cat population.

Wednesday, the committee elected officers and discussed adding high school and college student representatives. The committee again talked about how to approach the issue of animal control and what they'll need for their next meeting.

"We'll very likely take public input the next time we meet as to opinions of people who are cat supporters or against having the feral cats and whatever things we may look at as options," said Albany Assistant City Manager Wes Smith.

 At their last meeting, the committee came up with a plan they'd like to see city leaders adopt. They want cat owners to vaccinate and tag or micro-chip their pets with their address. That way, if animal control picks up a cat, they can bring it home.
