A plan spelling out how Foster City will approach dealing with its Canada goose population has been delayed because of a contract issue between the city and contractor, with the intent to get it resolved by February.

The contract delay is due to an administrative contract issue that required further vetting that came up before the council’s Jan. 17 meeting, according to Foster City staff. The city plans to bring the proposed contract agreement to the council no later than the second meeting in February. The council approved the continuation of a contract decision at its Jan. 17 meeting.

Thanks for the update, Mr. Driscoll. What’s the score now? Canada Geese 20, Foster City 0? As in each month the Canadian geese have their way with Foster City? As for Mr. Allen saying a lot of time and money is spent on killing animals, I’d suggest Foster City hold a Wild Goose Chase Hunt where hunters get the spoils. Not much time and money needed but I’m betting plenty of players who’d pay entry fees to reduce the goose population.
