The Fulton County Animal Welfare Hearing Board plans to meet virtually Wednesday at 5 p.m.

The board reviews claims by Fulton County Animal Control, managed by LifeLine Animal Project, of dogs classified as dangerous or vicious. Board members also study animal-related issues and make recommendations to the Fulton County Commission.

The board was established in March 2019. An agenda shows that the board elected its chair and vice-chair in October 2020.
