CLINTON — The Clinton City Council will review a proposed agreement between the city and the Clinton Humane Society at the 7 p.m. meeting tonight, after the issue was postponed during the last regular council meeting.

The agreement includes a number of changes, according to the resolution, in regard to the humane society’s function as the city’s pound. As part of the agreement, the city of Clinton will provide the humane society an annual subsidy of $30,000 to be paid in monthly installments.

Also, the city will pay the humane society $9 per day for each cat and dog brought to the facility by the city. For bite cases, the city will pay $11 per day, and dangerous animals require a $13 fee. Animals brought to the society, will be kept for four days at the expense of the city.

Also, at tonight’s meeting, the city will look to establish the city of Erfde in Schleswig-Hostein, Germany, as a sister city to Clinton. Although some cities pay to be included in a sister-city organization, Ward 2 councilman Mike Kearney mentioned at the last committee of the whole meeting that no funds would have to be used toward travel or organizational dues.

The council will also discuss approving the $4.6 million bond issue that includes funds to be used for street improvements, public safety, parks and recreation, fiber optic installation and a generator for city hall.

In addition, the council will vote on a resolution, recommended by the City Services Commmittee, to name the Clinton Park’s basketball courts to Vince Jetter Basketball Courts.

During the City Services Committee and committee of the whole meeting, the honor received full support from council members.
