Administrator/Warden's report: Ms. Parker discussed the reduced adoption fees and wondered whether the committee wished to continue offering adoptions at the reduced rates of $50 per dog and $35 per cat. The reduced cat adoption fee seems to have increased the number of cat adoptions. The committee agreed to let the discount expire at the end of November, as planned, and re-evaluate the issue in January. Ms. Parker will prepare statistics on the sale to help facilitate the discussion. Ms. Parker also reported that she received notification from Dr. Gillen's office that each service is increasing by two dollars. Nothing further to report.

Budget: No concerns.

A motion was made by Mr. Ruben, seconded by Mr. Martin, to pay the bills as presented for payment. Motion passed.

A motion was made by Mrs. Schumacher, seconded by Mr. Anderson, to adjourn the meeting. Motion passed. Meeting adjourned at 7:28 pm.
