No one seems to care about Jones sweetheart deal with LAAS. Almost no comments. Finally I got one from a former animal shelter director:
I cannot believe this! The City could hire vets to perform the work for less. This is really wierd and unusual. Did LAAS check with SCVMA for referals and references?
The moving from Pacima to an LAAS's shelter with equipment is beyond belief. The cost of running a clinic is unbelieveable.
Think of it. The City is paying Jones $320,000 a year for no free say neuters and to support Jone's private practice, for which the City gets 10% of the net income. Of course net may be closer to gross than in most practices, as Jones is not paying rent or utilities.
Certainly Ed could buy two qualified vets who would jump at the chance to make $120,000 a year and two cheap techs. AND, the spay/neuters would be FREE.
