The dogs were confiscated on ~Y:7,'2010 after numerous com- plaints through December of 2009, of them running rampant through the East Third Street neighborhood, killing cats and attacking a pet don- key. Eye witnesses identified the dogs that belonged to Dory Mendo- za De Ramirez, a resident on East Third Street. The city gave a list of provisions that would be required of the dog owner in order to keep the dogs, but the owners signed custody of the Pit Bulls over to the city, which also alleviated the need for an ad- ministrative hearing. Coursey explained the funding problems for the project. The railway is to be funded by a sales tax measure called Measure Q, passed by voters in 2008 approving a quarter cent sales tax. Those sales tax revenues are down as much as 10 percent now, and that, combined with a tightening of the credit market, is affecting the agency's bonding capacity. There is enough money, however, to continue paying for the design and engineering of the project. He also said the agency will have a better estimate of the total cost of the project by the end of this summer. Meanwhile, there is a $155 million shortfall being projected. "If the economy gets better, that will help us too," he said. "We are basically in the same position that we were in when the [SMART] board discussed this last month. It was never a done deal that it would be pl.aced on the MTC .priority list, it was just one idea," Coursey said. Mayor Russell Says "everything is in play." She noted that SMART staff and the board of directors are looking at every option. "They had an idea [placing SMART on the MTC priority list for federal funding], and it didn't work. Now we need to come up with another idea." Meanwhile, Mayor Russell, is not going to wait around and hope. She is organizing a grass roots campaign to support completion of the entire rail system. She has partnered with Mike McGuire, candidate for Fourth Dis- trict supervisor in co-authoring a petition to support the rail project. "The petition is in essence asking for fair consideration for Sonoma County. It has been sent to all registered voters who included an email address in their information, but it is also available on McGuire's website: www.mike for," she explained. Russell stressed that she doesn't want to "divide," the county. The petition is for "All residents of Sonoma County. It is important that every- one who wants this train get their voices heard. We need a grass roots campaign and this is a start." She said the train has become a political issue. "When you are talking about our economy, our downtown station area plan, our future, it be- comes political," she said.
