Response from the City of Millbrae
The City of Millbrae agrees with this finding.
The City of Millbrae notes that according to the Grand Jury Report, only three of nineteen cities in the County (16%) have adopted the Pet Overpopulation Program ordinance. It should further be noted that San Mateo County Cities have joined with the County to analyze Peninsula Humane Society Animal Control Services and Costs. It is our view that implementation of the Pet Overpopulation Program by all Cities must be incorporated into this cost-benefit analysis. This analysis is being conducted by DMG-Maximus and is being administered by the County Environmental Services Agency. This analytical report is due to be completed in December 2001. The City of Millbrae will review the DMG Maximus Report and any possible cost benefit impacts anticipated by enactment of the Pet Overpopulation Program ordinance at that time.
