Council Delays Animal Control Contract

Posted on 19 February 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council has once again delayed approval of the annual Animal Control Contract with the Boone Area Humane Society.  Council member Greg Piklapp had asked for the contract to be delayed at the last Council meeting, seeking supporting documentation about the cost of service being provided under the current contract.  An administrative transition by the Humane Society in 2012 meant that a few months of information had not been provided to the city.  Monday night, after lengthy discussion between some of the Council members and some of the Humane Society staff, it was decided that the contract renewal for the next fiscal year will be tabled until June.  In the meantime, City Administrator Luke Nelson and Police Chief Bill Skare will work with the Humane Society staff and Board Members to put together the kind of information being sought by council members.  The proposed contract for the 2014 Fiscal Year, beginning July 1st calls for a total reimbursement of just over $70,000.  Boone Mayor John Slight on the KWBG “Tuned In” Program talked about the contract amount and the Council’s questioning.  He says he believes everything will be worked out and the City and the Humane Society will continue their collaboration on animal control.
