Cat house benefits county

-A +A
I would like to set the record straight about the rent the Cat House is being charged. As we know the Cat House has been in operation about 10 years. Rosemary   Frieborn has been an outspoken critic of Placer County animal facilities for much longer than that. So if the county had wanted to retaliate against the Friends of Placer County Animal Shelter they would have done so a long time ago. Therefore I do not believe the rent was imposed as other than a business decision. I realize the rent was calculated at a discounted rate for a nonprofit organization but I believe the benefit the Cat House does for the animal community of this county far outweighs the money Placer County receives in rent. Also, it is a benefit to the county to have that building occupied by responsible people who have an excellent track record.   Harriet White, Retired Placer County Supervisor, District Three
