Proposed spay/neuter clinic will follow protocol

The founder of St. Seton’s Orphaned Animals is slated to address the Board of Supervisors during the public comment session of the April 5 meeting.

Like any other citizen, Jeanette Allard will be allotted 3 minutes to address the board during the public comment session on general items of interest and/or concern.

Allard will propose opening a low cost spay/neuter clinic in the old County Animal Shelter building located at the former landfill at 11220 Henry Griffin Road.

According to Board of Supervisors Chairman Joe Grzeika, any proposal needs to follow established

protocols.

“The county administrator and the county attorney will need to brief the board on allowable use of the property,” Grzeika said.
But that briefing would only start the process.

If the county officials indicate that an agreement can be entered into for private use of the property, the board would need to decide whether they want to allow the private use.

“The board would need to agree that we want to use it in that manner,” Grzeika said. This vote would be up to the Board of Supervisors.”

If the supervisors agree they want to enter into an arrangement with a private organization for use of the building, they would need to make a public offering to that effect.

A deadline would be set for the requests for proposals to be submitted. And like all other contracts entered into by the county, the proposals would need to meet all financial, insurance and indemnification requirements set forth therein.

After the proposals are received and reviewed, the board would need to conduct a public hearing to get feedback from citizens, businesses and organizations in the community.

Once all data, proposals and public comments are submitted and considered along with other factors already under consideration, such as the long term plan to turn the area into ball parks, the matter would be put to a vote of the board.

Only after the supervisors approve a proposal would any private organization be allowed to proceed with a project.

“We have a process of checks and balances in government that needs to take place concerning any action,” Grzeika said. “And meeting those milestones can be a slow process.”

The initial public comment from St. Seton’s founder Allard at the April 5 meeting is the first step in that process.

Editorial note:  Because the Journal went to press at the same time as the regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting, a report on the presentation and any corresponding reports or discussion by county officials will appear in next week’s paper.
