I'm glad the council is looking at alternatives, although I have no complaints with PA Animal Control's coverage. Looking at cost-saving alternatives is their job.
That said, I agree with Macias to discuss the matter with Palo Alto first, to see if there's any place some cutting can be done. For example, if PA were to charge MV residents the $7 more that SVACA charges for licensing, this would eliminate much of the difference. I disagree that the distance to SVACA's facility is a problem--most of the city's animals don't get lost, thus don't end up at the shelter.
Err.. SVACA tends to euthanize at a much higher rate than PA.
As long as whoever does the job enforces the leash law at Bubb Park, I'm for it. The crowd that gathers every Saturday near the playground is getting huge and its only a matter of time before a leashed dog walking through or a child gets hurt. Currently if you're walking your dog on a leash in Bubb Park you can expect to be RUSHED by a pack of about 5-10 dogs while their owners try and pretend they have voic control over them (they don't)
THE PEOPLE WHO INSIST ON TURNING BUBB INTO AN ILLEGAL DOG PARK ARE STEALING THE PARK FROM OTHERS. ITS SELFISH.
Why does Council member Margaret Abe-Koga consider having regular meetings at SVACA a "selling point" compared to meeting "on a as needed basis"? Do council members get paid for each meeting they attend? - thinking about what I have read about the scandal in southern California's city of Bell where city officials were earning a lot of money.
Dave must be a toy dog/cat person.
Snoopy must be one of those rogue dog owners, the one's who give the law abiding dog owners like myself a bad name. BTW, I own an Australian Shepherd snark puppy. Can't wait until the tickets start flying!
Snoopy, that was classic "Attack the messanger" stuff. Pretty weak.
Oh great, now we've got 'rogue dog owners' in Mountain View!
Don't miss out on the discussion!
