Subject:    Consider Approval of Animal Impound Agreement and Fees to Animal Humane Society
Submitted For: Brad Wise From: Joan Lenzmeier, City Clerk

INTRODUCTION

Council is asked to consider approval of the 2019 agreement and associated fees for animal impound services with Animal Humane Society, located at 1411 Main Street NW, Coon Rapids.

DISCUSSION
The proposed agreement term will start January 1, 2019 and is scheduled to end December 31, 2019, unless otherwise terminated and will automatically extend for additional one year terms unless either party gives written notice at least 30 days prior to the expiration of the term. 

The agreement includes provision that Animal Humane Society is available to City staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Public hours for picking up animals is Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Saturday and Sunday 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  At intake, every animal will receive a basic veterinary examination including rabies shots, if required.

As outlined in the attached agreement, when animals are unclaimed, the City is responsible for a fee of $190 to cover the cost of the five day mandatory hold.  If the animal is claimed by the owner within the five day period, the City's fee is $21.  These rates are guaranteed through 2019.

The budget set for 2019 impound services is $9,500. This is sufficient to cover the fees imposed by Animal Humane Society for Animal and Impound Services.
RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends Council approval of the 2019 agreement and associated fees for animal impound services with Animal Humane Society.
