16th. Concerning an animal MOU with the Sheriff’s Department, Mayor Sarah Jackson stated she’d met with Sheriff Fisher who will continue to respond to animal/human or animal/animal issues. Sarah proposed dealing with incident issues and to pay that way. Supervisor Paul Roen said he’d take that forward at the Board of Supervisors. Sarah has been in contact with the Town of Truckee on a kennel contract where the city would pay the charge. Council member Joy Markum wanted to rewrite the ordinance to make the dog owner responsible for the cost of shelter and the mayor agreed. No action was taken.
RECREATION GRANT: Supervisor Roen told the Council of Prop. 68 per capita funding through CA State Parks and the opportunity of a $200,000 grant for recreation improvements. He said draft guidelines just came out. The City needs a committee and to get community input. The deadline is in July. Roen stated the “Pool comes to mind as a rec center.” The City needs to apply.
