Humane Society of Scott County

The Humane Society of Scott County, 2802 W. Central Park Ave., Davenport, is an "authorized agency" of the Scott County Health Department and thus, receives financial support from its budget. Humane society personnel are also involved in investigating rabies cases in the county.

Health inspectors from the Scott County Health Department, Davenport, took action on three safety complaints in the past month.

In addition, 16 people required rabies risk assessments in November.

A food service complaint came from Duck City Bistro, 115 E. Third St., Davenport. Dirty sump pump water was discharging across the sidewalk, but the situation was resolved, according to the Scott County Health Director's report, released Dec. 11.

In addition, swimming pools were cited at the Days Inn, 3202 E. Kimberly Rd., Davenport, and the Holiday Inn & Suites, 4215 Elmore Ave., Davenport. 

At the Days Inn, the water temperature was too high in the spa. At the Holiday Inn, the chlorine level was below safe limits in the pool, according to the report. Both situations were resolved and the facilities reopened.

In addition, the health department revealed that in November, 16 individuals required rabies risk assessments after exposures to animals. This included: 10 dogs, 5 cats, and one wild animal, a fox or coyote. Nine of the individuals were recommended for rabies post-exposure prophylaxis.

The director of the Scott County Health Department is Ed Rivers, and the entire report is presented to the Scott County Board of Health.

The health board meets publicly at noon on Thursday, Dec. 17, in the first-floor board room at the Scott County Administrative Session, 600 W. Fourth St., Davenport.
