SUBJECT

Title

Approval of a Third Amendment to the Agreement entered between the City of Fresno and the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

 

Body

RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends that the City Council approve the Third Amendment to the Agreement entered between the City of Fresno and the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for a one-year extension of the Agreement with an option to administratively extend for one additional year. The contract amount will be based upon Council approval of the budget for the corresponding year.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

The Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CCSPCA) provides the City of Fresno (City) with all animal control, pound master, veterinary and animal sheltering services, and facilities per a contract entered in March of 2014 and effective through June 30, 2019. The City is currently in the bidding period for a Request for Qualifications for Animal Control Services that is scheduled to close June 21, 2019. The proposed Third Amendment will allow the CCSPCA to continue to provide services and provide the City with time to review proposals and determine next steps for the animal control services.

 

BACKGROUND

 

The current agreement with the CCSPCA has been in effect since March of 2014, since then, the CCSPCA has continued to provide the City with animal control services including animal control, pound master, veterinary and animal sheltering services. As the agreement is set to expire on June 30, 2019, staff recommends that the City Council approve the Third Amendment to the Agreement entered between the City of Fresno and the CCSPCA for a one-year extension of the Agreement with an option to administratively extend for one additional year. The extension will keep all other terms of the contract as is, and will base the contract amount upon the Council approved budget. The FY 2020 proposed budget includes $4,233,921 to fund contract, a $245,670 increase from the previous contract amount of $3,988,251; these increases are due to a change in the minimum wage detailed in the budget request letter and budget detail from the CCSPCA. The City released a Request for Qualifications for Animal Control Services on April 11, 2019 which is scheduled to close on June 21, 2019. The Third Amendment will allow the CCSPCA to continue to administer the animal control services through this RFQ process.  Staff recommends that the City Council approve the Third Amendment to the Agreement entered between the City of Fresno and the CCSPCA.
