BARC's Change Agent Finally Gets A Contract
City Council unanimously approved hotly debated 6-month contract for Gerry Fusco, interim chief for the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care.
The unanimity was a bit of a surprise, given the sharp critcism doled out two weeks ago by Councilwoman Jolanda Jones, who said she felt Fusco had refused to give her enough information about the benchmarks on his contract, among other things.
The $135,000 contract will keep Fusco at BARC through January.
There was no mention we heard of the report released yesterday by "no-kill" advocate Nathan Winograd, which painted a bleak picture of BARC operations even after Fusco had been on the job.
