TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry has instructed county health and animal control experts to inspect the Tucson Greyhound Park as soon as possible.  Huckelberry issued a memorandum on July 29 that reads:

"A recent newsletter of City of Tucson Council member Steve Kozachik included some concerns about compliance of the Tucson Greyhound Park kennel with adopted rules and regulations of the City of South Tucson regarding kennel operation.

Please have the Tucson Greyhound Park kennel facility inspected as soon as possible and provide me with a written report assuring full and complete compliance."

The memorandum sent to county health managers and Pima Animal Care Center comes weeks after the Tucson Greyhound Park's CEO, Tom Taylor, was fired.  The park now has an interim CEO.
