Yesterday's Animal Services Commission trainwreck meeting

Larry Powell attended yesterday's meeting and published a comprehensive report at Read Larry Powell.

It is truly painful reading. The "solutions" put in place are ridiculous. Herewith some lowlights:

  • Seems that Kent Robertson jumped before he was pushed.
  • There isn't a Shelter Manager position any announcement everyone objected to, except the bureaucrats who introduced it.
  • Animal Services is actually run by Code Compliance. (This is why, after DAS couldn't persecute Laniq Adams any more, Code Compliance showed up with that bogus accusation that the shelter wasn't zoned properly.)
  • As usual, questions were answered by the "We'll look into that and get back to you." I guess they were channeling Kent Robertson.

After reading Powell's report - and I'd like to thank him for publishing it - I honestly don't think the situation at DAS can get any worse.

Thanks, FP, for the point in Larry's direction. Great blog by him, and posted in great detail. I also spoke with a couple of folks that were there. Doesn't sound like it was significantly different than the last meeting I attended about a year ago. However, since Larry provided such marvelous detail, I decided to respond to his blog with a few points. Since it was a novella, I will not duplicate it here. But what great coverage of the meeting. Thanks for the heads-up!
