Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

As part of Objective 2.2 of the Good Governance Goal in the Board approved Strategic Plan, Board policies are undergoing a review/update process. 

 

The Board first adopted the Dead Animal Disposal Policy G-3 in 1987, to set forth rules regarding the responsibility and disposal of dead animals.  On July 22, 2014, Item 4, the Board approved an Amendment to Policy G-3 which clarified department responsibility for disposing of dead animals on County roads and roadsides and enabled the termination of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of Transportation (Transportation) and Animal Services. 

 

This modification updates titles to reflect County department name changes as well as citing County Ordinance 6.28.030 and Board of Supervisors Resolution 143-2016 for charging/recovering costs of dead animal disposal.

The Board could choose not to approve the modifications and direct further revisions.
