(MGT), to analyze cost <br /> Lancaster,CA 93536 recoverymethodologY and provide recommendations for development of <br /> (661)940-4191 <br /> billing rates. MGT will finalize its report after the beginning of FY 2016-17. <br /> As a part of their ongoing analysis, MGT has identified that the Department <br /> methodology for identifying costs does not capture costs associated with the <br /> provision of veterinary services to all sheltered animals. Since the time the <br /> methodology was initially developed, changing laws and community <br /> expectations have resulted in an expanded level of service. This has not <br /> been reflected in past billing rates. A full capture of this cost results in a $12 <br /> per animal, per day cost increase. In an effort to balance the need to recover <br /> costs with a consideration of the impact of this increase to cities, only a <br /> portion of the increase will be applied to the sheltering rate for FY 2016-17. <br /> As a result, rates have been set at $28.79 per animal, per day, a $5.00 <br /> increase. <br /> "To Enrich Lives Through Effective And Caring Service" <br />
