Subj: Yelm Animal Alliance Service Provider Agreement
To approve the 2014 Service Provider Agreement between the City of Yelm and Yelm Animal Alliance (YAA) for dog fostering and adoption services.
The City entered into an arrangement in 2010 with Yelm Animal Alliance for the fostering and adoption of unclaimed dogs from the Yelm animal shelter. This arrangement was formalized in a service provider contract in 2012 which has been renewed on an annual basis.
Yelm Animal Alliance provides a valuable service to the community that Mayor Harding and staff support as an ongoing relationship. With that, continuation of the existing service agreement for the year 2014 is recommended, however, Section 2, Term, has been revised to renew annually on January 1st, unless either party chooses to terminate according to the provisions within. The agreement includes an annual administrative fee of $500.00 and $50.00 per dog (both fees unchanged from 2013) fostered and/or adopted by the Yelm Animal Alliance. The 2014 Budget includes funding for this service.
