CARSON CITY, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- News 4 has confirmed that the Director of Carson City Animal Services has been "let go".

According to Carson City Manager Nick Marano, Cindy Hannah took over the position about four months ago, after a dog was euthanized before the owner could claim the animal. Marano said they let Hannah go on Thursday to move in a different direction.

Animal Services is working on plans for a new facility that will cost nearly $4 million. It is scheduled to break ground next June.

In an unrelated story, the Animal Services facility was robbed Wednesday night. Less than $200 was stolen, and Marano said the break-in is not related to Hannah’s departure.

I agree with Adam Hulme. When you put someone in charge of a department who has zero experience in that Field you get nothing but trouble. The City Of Fernley since its inception has done the same thing with Animal Control and as a result the City has Lost some great Officers, the powers that be know of the problem but will do nothing about it! not the current officer but the previous officer had 4 different bosses in the 3+ years of service. each boss had a different set of rules, he finally got tired of the bad decisions made by these bosses and finally called it Quits! It would be my thought that Carson City Animal Services should be part of the Sheriff's Department or hire someone that has experience in Animal Control.

Nepotism in Carson City services? Say it isn't so. She obvious wasn't also part of the "good old boy" system here either. When it comes to working for Carson City/County, it's not what your credentials are, it's who you know. Pure and simple. That especially goes for the city's "Lack of Code Enforcement Investigator" Kevin McCoy. This is another one that needs to go away. He provides confidential information to his buddies, when someone complains about them, to them. Witnessed it first hand. Cindy must have been doing something right or a cousin, friend, buddy, etc, needed a job with lots of perks at taxpayers expense!

Carson City has a huge problem and the idea of putting one cent into bricks and mortar before management issues at Amimal Control are resolved is sheer folly. Until the city hires someone with the experience in animal welfare they'll keep spinning their wheels and at the end of the day the animals and the taxpayers will suffer. Last go around the city had numerous applicants with said experience. Ultimately the city transferred the new hire from another department. The only way this is going to stop is through the ballot box. We need to vote most of the city's self serving politicians out of office and hold city managers accountable. I truly feel sorry for Mrs Hannah though as I have personally be subject to the ugliness the city government dishes out those speak out against nepotism. Adam Hulme Carson City

Animal Services was burglarized, not robbed

The new direction is that you get fired for standing up against nepotism when you disagree with the Assistant City Manager's Husband who they have contracted to provide vet services. Hannah was for the animals, not the dirty nepotism and politics.
