The Slate Belt COG has hired a new animal control officer, Christine Mammi, whose duties will include rounding up runaway dogs and responding to nuisance calls regarding canines. The duties will, at first, be limited to dealing with dogs. Slate Belt COG Executive Director Scott Parsons said he would like to expand the role in the future for cats and other problem animals.

Christine Mammi can be reached at 610-217-7025 for questions and concerns. If immediate assistance is needed call 911 or the local police.


A Message from The Slate Belt COG - It has come to the attention that Phil Bell, the past animal control officer for some municipalities, has been driving around the slate belt with a sign on his truck saying animal control officer with a phone number. Any issues related to dogs and cats will be handled by our animal control officer, Sue Henn. Mr. Bell is licensed to handle wild animals such as skunks, ground hogs for which he can be hired to handle himself. He has no standing with the COG.


The Slate Belt COG has introduced a new program to spay-neuter feral cats. In order to participate in this program you will need to get a voucher before you can set up an appointment.
Vouchers are available at the Township office. A $15 co-pay per cat/voucher, is payable to the service when making the appointment. This fee DOES NOT get paid to the township.
For more information, please contact The Slate Belt COG 610 588-1000 or Lower Mount Bethel Township office 610 252-5074.


Northampton County Community & Economic Development recently partnered with the D.A.'s office, County Police Association and Sheriff's Department to install secure medicine collection boxes in 20 police departments throughout the County as well as at our County Courthouse. For a list of Medicine Collection Box locations click here

The medicine collection and destruction program will be available without charge thanks to a grant of $13,000 from the PA State District Attorney's Association.

Residents can anonymously dispose of unwanted medicines at police departments and the Sheriff's Office locations listed. Law enforcement officials will turn over the collected medicines to the PA National Guard Counterdrug Joint Task Force (PA NG Task Force). The secure destruction services, including energy recovery, are being provided through the PA NG Task Force.

Drug addiction and misuse by adults and children harm public health. Improper disposal of medicines can impact water quality. Key objectives and benefits of the program include the following:

* Reduced access of medicines to children and adults, minimizing abuse potential
* Improved environmental quality through proper disposal
* Convenient box access to county residents
* Cost effective solution for NC residents through leveraging of PA DA grant and PA NG destruction resources

If you should have any questions about this program, please contact Ken Zinis at
