The March 31, 2008 Memorandum of Understanding between Los Angeles and Beverly Hills regarding the provision of animal care services is attached.
A requirement of this contract was that Beverly Hills was to adopt Los Angeles' animal codes.
Beverly Hills is considering adding an ordinance banning the feeding of feral cats. Such an ordinance would create a health hazard of starving and sick cats which could spill over into Los Angeles.
It is also antithetical to the pursuit of establishing a TNR policy for the City of Los Angles, who currently is conducting a CEQA study regarding the environmental effects of TNR.
For this reason, I urge the Mayor, Council, the City Attorney and LAAS to revoke this animal services contract with Beverly Hills should they pass the ordinance banning feeding feral cats as per the agreement, within 90 days of the ordinance's passge.
