Jim Sharp, Assistant Administrative Officer for the County of San Luis Obispo explained to the City Council the proposed animal control program to be conducted by the County of San Luis Obispo starting July 1, 1974. He stated that the County was moving ahead with an animal control program which would include.patrol, enforcement, and a neutering clinic. He stated that the County program was being prepared with the possibility of contracting with the cities for joint operation of the shelter and animal control program. Also, the County was proposing the possibility of a joint - powers agreement with the Board of Supervisors being the governing body for all animal control within the County including the cities who are in the agreement. The advantage would be that the County would handle the complete animal control program, including the collection of all fees for dog licenses, for redemption and in the neutering program. He also felt that the Supervisors were attempting to have the program be self - supporting with only a small amount of funds ultimately to be made up by these participating agencies. He stated that the ultimate cost would be determined by a strict cost- accounting system which would require the local agencies to pay-only their actual share of animal control by a per - animal unit rather than on a population basis. The City Council discussed several points with Mr. Sharp and concluded that they were looking forward to the formal presentation of contracts for inclusion of cities within the animal control program. 3. The City Council considered a communication from the Promotional Coordinatina Committee recommending that the City Council allocate $150 from Promotional Committee funds to be granted to the Old Fashioned Fourth of July celebration in order to help defray the cost of two bands that would be supplied for the celebration; one band for modern dancing and one for senior citizens' dancing. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by. Councilman Norris that the request of the Promotional Coordinating Committee be approved and $150 be granted from Promotional Committee funds.
