Default Oakland County Animal Control. Tim Horton random updates.

I visit Tim Hortons on walton in auburn hills every morning between 8:40-9:45am. Every day the oakland county animal control people are parked there either reading the news paper, or smoking. On warm days they stand outside, on cold days they park really close to each other so they can talk. I'll use this thread to document them.

My estimation is they spend upwards of 45 minutes per day in the Tim Hortons drive thru, parked in the corner away from the road, idling their vehicles and eating donuts.

Day #1. Drive thru wait, 7 minutes. 9:24 - 9:31 am.

33% of the oakland county animal control workers successfully parked in a parking spot today.

Does your employer know you are spending time at Tim Hortons every mornings?

Does Fox News still bust government workers on their broadcast for this kind of stuff?

Or is that only in the city of Detroit?

Is it these guys' job to actually patrol the streets, or are they supposed to be working at some animal control center somewhere?

If they're out on patrol then I don't have a huge issue with it, they're probably just waiting for a call. Although that's an unnecessary amount of resources to have sitting around at one time.

This proves that Obama built cc's business, because why else would he have time for this?
