Resolution Amending the Composition of the Membership of the Animal Resolution Amending the Composition of the Membership of the Animal Control Advisory Committee to Make Designated Staff Members Non-Voting and Substituting Therefore Voting Citizen Members

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, on June 20, 2007 the Hampton City Council adopted Resolution No. 07-0339 formally establishing the current Animal Control Advisory Committee and charging the Committee to, among other things, act in an advisory capacity to the City Council to review animal control issues in the City;

 

WHEREAS, Resolution No. 07-0339, as amended by Resolution No. 10-0512 provided that the membership of the [Animal Control Advisory Committee] shall consist of seven (7) members: one (1) Assistant City Manager; the Hampton Animal Control Manager; one (1) Hampton veterinarian; and four (4) citizens of the City, one of which shall be a Peninsula SPCA board member whenever legally and practically feasible;

 

WHEREAS, Resolution No. 07-0339, also provides that the Committee shall meet biennially and the Council has determined that the demands of the Committees work require more frequent meetings as determined by the Committee;

 

WHEREAS, the Council has determined, following consultation with the city manager, that the public interest is better served by converting the membership of the two city staff members on the Committee from voting to non-voting (ex-officio) status, and establishing two additional citizen member seats, thereby maintaining a composition of seven voting members, and permitting the Committee to establish its meeting frequency;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia that:

 

1. The membership of the Animal Control Advisory Committee shall consist of nine members, including seven (7) voting members and two non-voting members, as follows: (a) seven (7) citizens of the City who shall include a Peninsula SPCA board member and a veterinarian or other certified animal health care professional, whenever legally and practically feasible, all of whom shall be voting members; and (b) two non-voting members who shall be the Assistant City Manager charged by the City Manager with oversight of animal control, and the Hampton Animal Control Manager; and

 

2. The Committee is hereby authorized to establish its own meeting frequency provided that it shall meet at least semi-annually;

 

3. All other provisions of Resolution No. 07-0339, as amended, not inconsistent with this Resolution shall remain in effect.

 

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on January 8, 2014.
