On the agenda is the awarding of a bid for the project, $6.49 million bid. That amount will also expand police headquarters and a , which are all on the same site as the new animal shelter will be.

All three projects — police renovation, court expansion, and new animal shelter — have been discussed over the years, but now that the projects are closer to breaking ground, let's hear your thoughts.

I think we could use a shelter more than we needed that foolish girls sports complex that was just built.

Its about time this animal shelter was supposed to have been built already. Yes it is needed. As is a facility to help the homeless. A new police station and court house not.
