Animal shelter dictates terms
October 01, 2013, 6:00 pm by James Walker
Burnet County commissioners were scolded and essentially told "take it or leave it,” Tuesday in a letter from the head of the organization that handles the county’s homeless and stray animals.
The Commissioners Court and the Hill Country Humane Society and its Christ Yoder Animal Shelter have recently exchanged proposals regarding a contract for Fiscal Year 2014, which began Tuesday.
The non-profit humane society’s first proposal was for a $2,800 increase in the yearly fee the county has paid since 2008, from $28,569 to $31,369.
The commissioners, miffed that Hill Country Humane Society allegedly submitted its proposed contract after the county had completed its FY 2014 budget process, countered with a letter saying it would pay the same amount as FY 2013 and the previous four years.
