Good news, great job guys!


5th District At Large City Council Member Cindy Circo got this thing going. I talked to her about privatizing the shelter quite a while ago and I think everyone, including former AC Director Mike Schumacher, had come to the conclusion that reforming a city run shelter was hopeless.

Oddly enough, the new set up with have benchmarks in the contract on descreasing kill rates, etc. Something that SHOULD be done for city departments. Our govt agencies have little to NO accountability. So whenever folks out there ask for govt involvement be careful what you wish for...for local issues no one can do a better job than local, PRIVATE organizations in the vast majority of situations.

Kudos to all involved that made this happen.
