Committee Closer to Picking New Animal Shelter Site

The search continues for a new home for the Macon-Bibb Animal Welfare Department.

The committee in charge of selecting the site met to discuss options Monday.

They did that in a closed session, but committee chair, Commissioner Lonzy Edwards say they've narrowed it down a little.

"There's a site that we think has some appeal, but there's some additional pieces of information we need," said Edwards. "We need to also make sure we have a fall back position in the event that that one does not pan out, so we're not anywhere close to a position where we can name that site or say, you know, which area of town we're looking.

Edwards says they could make the decision on the architect for the shelter at their next meeting.

He says he hopes soon after they they will on the location.

The committee is planning a welcome event for the new director of the shelter.

Sarah Tenon is expected to start on Monday, Oct. 1.
