Staff recommends approval of the contracts with Rick Staton and Danny Kornegay for feral hog removal services at the City’s spray sites.
The City’s current contractor for hog removal services has failed to perform satisfactorily which has resulted in continued environmental damage to the City’s spraysite properties. Lake County Water Authority owns land which abuts the City’s spray sites and is currently finalizing contracts with Rick Staton and Danny Kornegay for feral hog removal on that property. These contractors are both equipped and experienced and the proposed contracts will allow for more efficient feral hog removal on City property.
1. Approve the proposed feral hog removal services contracts, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The contractors will be paid $20.00 for each female feral hog of litter bearing age, the same as the current contract. Expenses to date have been less than $500 per year, and the City’s cost is expected to be less than $2,000.00 per year under these new contracts.
