Mayor gives reasons for not signing Humane Society agreement

(Continued)

I decided not to sign the contract because, as I had stated in my Nov. 16, 2012 letter to the Council, I was opposed to the rate increase. The City Council was presented with an alternate proposal which I felt would greatly benefit the taxpayers due to the lower rate, but the Council made their decision to accept a higher proposal. This action is their prerogative, but I do not have to agree with their decision, hence the Council gets their choice, but without my signature.

Mark Vulich is the mayor of Clinton.
