The ordinance reads in full: (1) It is unlawful for any person in control of premises to keep, harbor or maintain thereon any dog or dogs which individually or together habitually bark, growl, yelp, howl or whine so loudly and for such a duration of time as to unreasonably disturb the peace, quiet, comfort and repose of others within the city of Yakima. Any such dog or dogs shall be declared a nuisance and may be seized and impounded if such disturbance reoccurs after the person in control of the premises has received two prior warnings within a period of six months from any law enforcement or animal control officer of the city. (2) It shall be an affirmative defense to subsection (1) of this section that the howling, yelping, barking or other noise complained of was by a guard dog or watch dog which was responding to intruders, trespassers or other persons entering onto or near the premises of the dog owner. There has been discussion as to whether any changes to the ordinance might be appropriate. To that point, the issue has recently been before committee where committee members have provided input. This memo provides a proposed ordinance which is the result of committee input. PROPOSED ORDINANCE #1: This proposal removes the “unreasonably” standard and replaces it with time period standard. The benefit to this approach is that it creates a bright line rule for what is a violation of the barking dog statute. This sets a 20 minute limit as requested by the committee. (1) It is unlawful for any person in control of premises to keep, harbor or maintain thereon any dog or dogs which individually or together repeatedly or continuously bark, growl, yelp, howl or whine for a period of twenty minutes or more. Memorandum July 24, 2019 Page 2 (2) It shall be an affirmative defense to subsection (1) of this section that the howling, yelping, barking or other noise complained of was by a guard dog or watch dog which was responding to intruders, trespassers or other persons entering onto or near the premises of the dog owner. CITY OF YAKIMA LEGAL DEPARTMENT 200 South Third Street, 2nd Fl. | Yakima, WA 98901 P: 509.575.6030 | F: 509.575.6160 M E M O R A N D U M July 19, 2019 TO: Chair and Members of the Public Safety Committee Cliff Moore, City Manager FROM: Cynthia Martinez, Senior Assistant City Attorney SUBJECT: Deflection Project Update The Deflection Project Committee continues to meet, although with vacation schedules and Trueblood grant activity, we have not met this summer. Our last decision was to focus on the first pathway, “Self-Referral,” and use that program as a foundation for the other pathways. On May 20, 2019, we had a phone conference with representative from, “A Way Out,” a self- referral program that exists in Illinois. (Link below) This was a model program discussed in the Deflection Training. We talked with employees of Lake County including the Police Chief and service providers for the program. They explained the program and the different agencies that cooperate to make the program a success. Basically, anyone can walk into a participating police department and say they want help with drug or alcohol addiction. A police department representative, which is a police officer, will meet with the individual and take the person and/or their loved ones through the onboarding process, which includes filling out paperwork and signing program waivers. They can also hand over illegal or legal drugs, no questions asked. Once the onboarding process is completed the officer transports the person to a participating facility for assessment and treatment as warranted. (A warm hand off) All of the police officers are trained to administer the onboard process. As of May 2018, the program had served 365 participants and 78% of those were placed in treatment programs. (the rest of the participants did not follow through) The average age of the participants is 32.5 and 13,000 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs have been destroyed. They also have a way to fund treatment if an individual doesn’t have insurance or can’t qualify for insurance. Our next step will be to structure a program that works with our community resources. http://awayoutlc.org/ Memorandum July 22, 2019 To: Public Safety Committee and City Manager, Cliff Moore From: Scott Schafer, Public Works Director Bob Desgrosellier, Acting Chief Engineer Subject: S. 36th Ave & Spring Creek roadways – Proposed striping layout The 1st Phase of Spring Creek Road Project, (36th Ave., Sorenson and 38th Ave., shown below in green), was designed and built as a 3-lane roadway with through lanes 15 feet wide each, and a two-way left turn lane 11 feet in width. (Phase 2 is in yellow below, tying to Washington Avenue) During project construction this summer, the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee realized that there was not a dedicated bike lane in Phase 1 and felt there should be a striped bike lane instead of shared-use through-lanes being 4 feet wider than a “normal” 11-foot travel lane. The Bike/Ped Committee requested staff to find out if a 5-foot dedicated bike lane could be striped on Phase 1 with lane adjustments. Staff referred to development codes, finding that the minimal “through” lane width was generally a minimum of 11 feet, leaving bike lanes each lacking 0.5 feet in width each, (1-foot total). The Bike/Ped Committee Chairman, Neil McClure, on behalf of the entire Bike/Ped Committee, met with staff last week to discuss potential options. Although staff did state and discuss the development standards in general, there was discussion to the extent of accepting that these roadway segments with the surrounding land-use, lower truck volume, and the natural draw for bicycle riders to the adjacent sporting complex and to the City’s 30-acre parcel for a future passive park, it was suggested to bring a request to the Public Safety Committee. 7/29/2019 2 City staff respectfully requests that the Public Safety Committee consider the proposed revisions to Phase 1 of the Spring Creek Roadway Project, reducing the striped width of through-lanes to 10.5 feet in width, the two-way left turn lane to 10 feet in width and add dedicated and striped bike lanes 5 feet in width on each side of the roadway. Details below show the comparative width of the Design versus Proposed lane striping. Phase 2 of the Spring Creek Roadway Project, yellow highlighted roadways in the above example, will not have a left-turn lane and can accommodate the continuation of the dedicated bike lanes. The Traffic Engineer is likely to prohibit trucks from this section from 48th Avenue and Washington Avenue, past SOZO, southerly to Sorenson Road and 38th Avenue. Final note: *Although Phase 1 has just been paved and is ready for striping, Engineering has directed the placement of temporary striping until a final determination is made to proceed with striping as designed or to modify the striping widths.
