When Boks was in NYC, I saw an order signed by him ordering personnel to feed dry food only until it was determined the animal would not be immediately euthanized.
Keeping in the same vein, Boks' new budget proposes a 20% cut in food for the animals, from $529,000 to $429,000.
See the entire animal services budget as well as its performance over the past 6 years at:
Why on earth is he cutting the food budget? There is an almost $20 million budget and he cuts food by 20%?
On page 34, you will notice that food is the only expense item cut, while the "operating supplies" budget was more than tripled, from $138,000 to $453,000!
This is absurd. Will employees start buying food for the animals--I hope--to compensate?
Maybe we should all bring food to the shelters.
It is amazing that they'd cut the food budget when animal food costs have so dramatically increased during the past year and a half.
Ed, GIVE THE ANIMALS MORE FOOD!
Fewer pencils, more food!
