After a number of community meetings, the city is looking to authorize a study of coyote management. The city council meeting scheduled for Feb, 11, 2019 has the agendized as Action Item A-2. Using a program proposed by Dr. Eric G. Strauss of LMU/LA Center for Urban Resilience, the process would also require the authorization of the Culver City Police Department.
If approved by the council, this action would create a three year agreement with Loyola Marymount University to conduct the study. A four -fifths approval is needed to pass, so a majority of the council will need to agree that studying the coyotes is worth an investment of $211,000.
The meeting is scheduled to being at 7 pm tonight at the Mike Balkman Council Chambers at City Hall.
