After weeks of controversy, Genesee County Commissioner Pegge Adams has resigned as chair of the animal control advisory committee.

In a statement, Adams said she is "happy with the positive goals" that were accomplished during her tenure as chair. However, Adams went on to say the "constant uproar regarding the GCAC has been an unending distraction from every other responsibility." She added that she was "committed, unless there is wrongdoing on their part, to protecting our employees."

Genesee County Commissioner Ted Henry will begin chairing the committee on Friday, August 22.
