The city council is expected to reverse the decision Friday.
The voucher suspension comes five months after a citywide ordinance went into effect that requires most pet owners to spay and neuter cats and dogs older than four months.
/*Animal Services General Manager Ed Boks*/ heard from three city councilmembers during a lengthy /*Public Safety Committee*/ meeting.
Councilmembers told Boks they are angry he did not consult with the /*Board of Animal Services Commissioners*/ and a pet-sterilization committee before stopping the coupons for free and discounted services.
Boks said his decision was based on a budget shortfall, but that he takes the committee's concerns seriously.
