County-owned land sought for new animal welfare facility
Bibb County officials continue to work on site selection for a new animal welfare shelter in the county.
A selection committee comprised of citizens, county officials and veterinarians met Monday afternoon to discuss possible sites and a new director.
County leaders say they hope to find county-owned land so they can put SPLOST money towards the actual shelter and not the site.
"If we can use all that money on the building and shelter itself instead of having to spend part of it on purchasing land, than that will be best so we can put all those funds into building a nice, beautiful shelter," said Public Affairs Officer Kevin Barrere.
This is the second meeting the committee has held. It's unclear when an actual vote or decision will be made on the final site or director.
