Background
On February 28, 2011, the Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution 025-2011 revising the Animal Services fee structure effective April 1, 2011 to increase adoption, licensing, and impound fees and empower the Chief Animal Control Officer to waive, discount, or defer fees when deemed in the best interest of the animal.  The Chief Animal Control Officer is also the County officer with responsibility for collection of Animal Services fees.  Resolution 025-2011 superseded previous Animal Services fee Resolution No. 126-2005.
 
Reason for Recommendation
Adoption of this resolution will allow for the separation of duties between the County officer with the responsibility for collection of Animal Services fees and the County officer with the ability to waive, discount, or defer those fees.  
 
The Resolution restates the current Animal Services fee structure and makes no changes to Animal Services fees.
 
The Resolution is effective upon adoption and supersedes Resolution 025-2011.
