Dillsboro Town Council greeted its new K-9, approved buying three computers, and discussed acquisition of a property in town at its regular November meeting.

The dog, a black Labrador, was purchased with money donated by multiple businesses and individuals. Chevy arrived at the town hall with his handler to find a chair labeled “Chevy's” topped with a bag of dog treats.

The 15-month-old dog has been trained for drug detection and will be a single-use K-9 for that purpose. Dillsboro Police Chief Ryan Brandt presented Standard Operating Procedures for his department's use of the K-9 to council, which approved them unanimously.
