Spaying and neutering vouchers for low-income residents are back and it didn't come without controversy. The vouchers were cut a few weeks ago because of citywide budget cuts. Animal Services General Manager Ed Boks had a choice where to cut his budget, unfortunately for him, he chose one of the most hot-button issues. Councilman Dennis Zine, who slammed Animal Services' Ed Boks about blogging last week, has asked for him to step down or be fired. "I think it's time for Mr. Boks to find another place to work," Zine said. "It's been a continuing saga of him and his mismanagement." To that, Boks responds: "I stand ready and willing to meet with Dennis Zine any time, any place to help move the department forward. This has been an open invitation for well over a year."
