You have my number; you know you can call,” Arias said. “The rescue groups need to wait until the other stuff gets done ... I want this to work, and I want it to work in the right way. You’ve already put thought into the people that you’re going to work with. I think we all just need to take a backseat. We’ll be called when we’re needed. You can’t put the cart before the horse.”

The first meeting will be more of an organizational meeting, but once the committee gets situated, it will start advertising the meetings to encourage participation from those in the county who wish to contribute.
