A RESOLUTION OF THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF YUCCA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA ACCEPTING BEQUEST FROM RUTH CLARK

 

 

Whereas, in April 2020, Town staff received notification that Town of Yucca Valley Animal Care and Control Division had been named beneficiary to the financial account of Ms. Ruth Clark (“Ms. Clark”), a deceased Yucca Valley resident; and

 

Whereas, staff investigated the matter to determine whether Yucca Valley Animal Care and Control Division was the rightful recipient of the bequest in the amount of $13,517.14, and Ms. Clark’s Power of Attorney provided the required documents for the Town of Yucca Valley to receive the designated funds from the resident’s financial institution; and

 

Whereas Government Code Section 37354 provides that the Town Council may accept or reject any bequest made to or for the Town, and may hold and dispose of the bequest for such uses as are prescribed in the terms of the bequest; and

 

Whereas, Staff has reviewed the needs of the Animal Care and Control Division and has determined the best recommended use of the funds is for the purchase of kennels and the continued operation of the spay/neuter voucher program.

 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Town Council of the Town of Yucca Valley, California as follows:

 

SECTION 1.              Pursuant to Government Code section 37354, the Town of Yucca Valley accepts the bequest from Ms. Ruth Clark in the amount of $13,517.14 to be used by the Town of Yucca Valley Animal Care and Control Division.  The bequest shall be used in accordance with the following expenditure plan:

 

 

SECTION 2.              The Town Manager, or his or her designee, is authorized to execute and deliver any documents necessary to accept the bequest or carry out the intent of this Resolution.  The Town Manager is authorized to make minor deviations from the expenditure plan set forth in this Resolution, provided all funds received through the bequest are used for the benefit of Yucca Valley Animal Control. 

 

 

 

APPROVED AND ADOPTED by the Town Council and signed by the Mayor and attested by the Town Clerk this 15th day of September, 2020.
