The approval for Budget Revision No. 2009-22 in the amount of $140,000 for the Animal Shelter Project should have been quick and easy because it was listed as part of the consent agenda. However, after council approved the agenda, Councilor Vincent Chiravalle asked that the animal shelter item be moved from the consent agenda to the business portion of the agenda during Tuesday night’s Council meeting.
During the Dec. 16 council meeting, councilors approved Budget Revision 2009-21, increasing the Animal Shelter Project budget from $1.28 million to $1.36 million to incorporate a metal roof, outside kennel drainage and increase the number of kennels from 14 to 18.
At that time, council also directed that the following enhancements be incorporated: Upgrade of the exterior to meet downtown architectural standards ($75,000); widen 12 kennels by 8 inches ($50,000); radiant panel heat for four kennels ($4,000); and epoxy floor coating ($11,000 for a total cost of $140,000).
Council also directed staff to return with a budget revision to increase the Animal Shelter Project Budget accordingly.
