Lavonia’s Mayor on Being Pet-Friendly
“Pets have a high value in the mental and physical wellbeing in a majority of our citizens. For me personally, I can attest that our several pets are a priority to each member of my family. The simple pleasure found in rewarding the family’s faithful canine companion by taking her for a playdate at the park gives a satisfying end to the day and/or week.”
– Mayor Courtney Umbehant
