FAAS, City Come to Terms


In a joint press release Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) and the City have announced that they have come to terms. If the City Council approves the agreement, the City could more than double the money it is currently paying FAAS to run the shelter. 

In January 2016, FAAS told the City that the $328,000 a year it was receiving could not sustain the shelter. Under the new agreement the City would pay FAAS up to $804,300 annually. 

The contract is scheduled to come before the City Council at its June 6 meeting. The Sun will cover the new contract in more detail in its June 1 edition.
