PUBLIC COMMENT - Rosemary Frieborn, Friends of Placer County Animal Shelters, questioned why Animal Control staff did not attend the seminar that was funded by her organization. She asked the Board to appropriate emergency funding to send staff to upcoming seminars. Michael Murphy, Libertarian Party, requested a spreadsheet of issues and how each supervisor voted be provided on the County website. Kathy Martinis, Auditor-Controller, provided the Placer County 2005 Citizens' Report, a summary of financial and economic conditions in Placer County. Michelle Buhan, Friends of Placer County Animal Shelters, asked Supervisor Holmes if changes had been made to the recording of animal services. Supervisor Holmes advised County Executive Office has established a committee to look into that. Rich Colwell, Chief Assistant County Executive, stated the County Executive has set in place a comprehensive effort to review management of Animal Control and discussions with various jurisdictions and non-profit organizations. He said staff did not attend the seminar because management did not have enough time to review issues of due diligence, liability, staff expenses and shift coverage.
