What's Coming Up
Upcoming Policy Solutions
- My resolution directing the Mayor to identify a sustainable funding source for mosquito control passed committee and will go to the Board in March. A consistent funding source will help ensure that we are proactively working to curb the spread of mosquito-borne diseases.
- I am sponsoring a resolution approved in committee that would notify county departments if a permit applicant or holder owes any fees. This item will also go to the Board in March.
- I sponsored an item that would fund a new marine patrol boat to be stationed at Black Point marina. The item cleared committee review and will be heard by the Board in March.
- We have a trio of animal protection bills moving forward in March reducing the age of volunteers in our shelters to 16, creating a registry to ensure animal abusers cannot adopt dogs from our shelter partners and ban the saleof dogs from puppy mills.
Be sure to give us your suggestions and ideas. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write us on Facebook and Twitter.
