In regards to the Saturday story, “City, humane society working on 3-year contract,” I am glad they agreed to the three-year contract. Why they even went through what they did is beyond me.

The city has been paying the same price for services since 2014. Everything in life has gone up in costs, yet the city has paid the humane society the same for three years and will pay the same another three years. Let’s hope in 2020, if the humane society asks for an fee increase of a reasonable amount, this does not become another sideshow again.

The city, I feel, has a right to ask to see the humane society’s budget and where the money goes as agreed in a contract. I wonder if this ever did happen when the city was asking to pay a lesser price for the same services? My water bill was around $50 12 years ago, yet is about $170 now. I wish I could have contracted with the city for the same price for six years or more.
