The city limits of Odum now has animal control services. If you're having problems with animals inside the city limits, you can contact Animal Control via City Hall in Jesup at 427-1313. Ask to speak to an Animal Control Officer. Give them your address, description of the animal, state how the animal is a problem, and ask that they come to Odum to investigate. The officer will contact the owner if possible; if the owner cannot be contacted, he will pick up the offending animal. This is handled through a contract Wayne County has with the City of Jesup. There are only two animal control officers handling calls for all of the county, so your patience is requested when calling them.

City Hall wants to remind you to be sure your trash is out and in the designated area by 7:00 a.m. to be picked up on Tuesday. Don't pack your bags too heavy, and be sure they are tied securely!
