City to hear presentations on animal shelter, Cape's Dam
Two subjects close to the community’s heart will be up for discussion at the city council workshop meeting this afternoon: The no-kill plan for the animal shelter and Cape’s Dam.
Council will hear a staff presentation and hold a discussion on the plan to achieve a 90 percent live outcome rate at the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter within five years. Information about the work toward no-kill status can be seen on the city's website.
Council will then hear a staff update on Cape’s Dam, including a proposal from the Hays County Historical Commission to take over responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the dam and mill race structures and surrounding areas of city-owned parkland. According to the agenda, the historical commission has said it intends to secure funding for restoration of the dam structure and ongoing operations and maintenance. The agenda states that the county has proposed transferring ownership of the Five Mile Dam Soccer Complex, Randy Vetter Park and Dudley Johnson Park to the city.
Council does not cast votes at its workshop meetings, nor is there a public comment period during workshops. The meeting will be held in council chambers at City Hall, 630 E. Hopkins St., at 3 p.m. Council meetings are televised live on Spectrum Ch. 10 and Grande Ch. 16 or 123-16 and streamed online.
