BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS: On December 14, 1999, the City Council approved an amendment to the grazing lease agreement between the City and William Friend for the extended use of the City's Open Space for the purpose of cattle grazing. As a condition of approving the amendment, the Council requested that the lessee install fencing to deter the cattle from entering the creek bed located on the eastern portion of the parcel. The cost of the required barbwire fencing and cattle gate is approximately $7,300 and was cost prohibitive to the lessee. Staff is recommending that the City install the requested fencing in this area. Historically, the City has provided barbwire fencing in open space areas where livestock graze. The cattle grazing agreement benefits the City by reducing the need for weed abatement, preserving the rural heritage as well as the natural beauty of the area, and conserving the environmental quality of the land. The lessee would be responsible for the maintenance of the fencing. The City currently performs weed abatement activities on the land that was proposed to be included in the lease. The annual cost savings to the City as a result of placing cattle on the site and eliminating manual weed abatement is approximately $1,700. This is the amount for hand crews, equipment, and operational costs. Grazing will improve the appearance of the land in that the cattle will use the entire parcel for forage compared to the perimeter weed abatement program. The benefit to the City is in the decreased cost for maintaining the parcel and the improved appearance of the land.

FISCAL IMPACT: The cost for the installation of fencing will be funded from Open Space Maintenance. The lease will reduce anticipated weed abatement costs by approximately $1,700 per year and increase revenue by $434.78 per year. Re oeectfully submitted, Recommended by: / r . 'r Do\sgbi N.
