02-13-2018 CC Rpt 17COUNCIL AGENDA STAFF REPORTCOUNCIL AGENDA STAFF REPORT TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS DATE: FEBRUARY 13, 2018 FROM: CITY MANAGER ITEM NO:17 SUBJECT:DOG PARK DONATION RECOMMENDATION: 1. Approve a memorial plaque recognizing Molly Gadd to be placed at Vila Borba Dog Park. 2. Approve a donation in the amount of $250 for the purchase of doggie bags at Vila Borba Dog Park. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS: Long time residents Sam and Cecilia Gadd would like to recognize and memorialize pet, and most importantly, family member "Molly" with a plaque at Vila Borba Dog Park. "Molly" was the inspiration behind Assembly Bill AB258, better known as Molly's Bill, that was signed by Governor Brown in 2011. Molly's Bill protects animals whose lives would be threatened by being required to get the rabies vaccination. In accordance with the City's Donation Policy, Section 3.5.4, this item was presented to the Park and Recreation Commission at their January 17, 2018, meeting. They voted 4 to 1 to recommend approval of the plaque and acceptance of the cash donation. If approved, staff would select an appropriate location at the dog park to display the plaque. The plaque would be 8" x 10" in size and would look very similar to typical City park dedication plaques. Attached is a draft of the plaque design. The Gadd family would pay for the cost of the plaque and, in addition, would donate $250 to purchase doggie bags for Vila Borba Park. ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW: This proposed action is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., "CEQA") and CEQA regulations (14 California Code Regulations §§ 15000, et seq.) because it constitutes an organizational or administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment. Accordingly, this action does not constitute a "project" that requires environmental review (see specifically 14 CCR § 15378 (b)(4-5)). FISCAL IMPACT: The cost of the plaque will be paid by the Gadd family. There will be no impact to the General Fund. 69/231 REVIEWED BY OTHERS: This staff report has been reviewed by the Finance Director.

When we rescued your, our lives changed forever. Molly you were more than a pet; you were a family member, a special friend, a loving soul we’ll never forget. Molly you inspired us to fight a 3 year battle that would save many pets in California from receiving a vaccine that could compromise their health or even be fatal, as it would have been to you. Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill AB258 better known as “Molly’s Bill” on 1007/11. Molly you have left our lives but never our hearts, RIP, Sam n Cec 79/231 no Meeting date: cL"" 1'1A REQUEST TO SPEAK COMMENTS ARE LIMITED TO 3 MINUTES The Red Light on the podium indicates your time has elapsed NOTE — THIS IS A PUBLIC DOCUMENT SUBJECT TO POSTING ON THE CITY'S WEBSITE.
