…WILDOMAR WOULD STILL SAVE AT LEAST TWO OF THEM PER YEAR…
…. by withdrawing from the Animal Friends agreement and developing our own Animal Services Department for the City of Wildomar.
This significant savings would be achievable because the contractual”arrangement” with the Southwest Communities Finance Authority, originally negotiated by former City Manager Frank Oviedo and then-Mayor Bridgette Moore was, and continues to be laughable and extravagant.
Please click on the following link to the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Patch report regarding last evening’s Budget Workshop :
Withdrawal from the agreement can be accomplished under the terms of the agreement , as follows
.”SECTION 4. TERMINATION AND AMENDMENTS
(b) The parties hereto may terminate their participation in the Joint Powers Authority , and this Agreement as provided herein.
(c) …. each party may terminate this Agreement on giving not less than sixty (60)days written notice to the other parties . “
Despite all of the fiscal handwringing by the City Council, and despite the potential of saving an additional $300,000 per year , and despite being able to celebrate the creation of two additional jobs in Wildomar, I doubt that the Wildomar City Council has the political b*lls to take the necessary steps to achieve this significant economic benefit for the people of Wildomar .
Comments can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the record, since I used Wildomar’s recently approved salary numbers for Animal Service Officers, and since the cost of labor is generally the greatest expense in any department budget, I doubt that my numbers would be off by $100,000.
