Tanya Hilgendorf and Conan Smith discuss the controversy over Humane Society funding cut
Humane Society Executive Director Tanya Hilgendorf is challenging those cuts, charging the county is reneging on an agreement reached when the agency built a new shelter several years ago. County officials counter that the proposed reduction is part of $1.2 million in cuts to outside agencies and that human services have to take a higher priority.
In separate interviews on 1290 WLBY, producer Dean Erskine and I talked about the funding controversy with Tanya Hilgendorf and Washtenaw County Board Chairman Conan Smith.
