An animal shelter is a fine idea, but they need to figure out what they're going to cut to pay for it.

There's no free lunch.

How is this effort connected to the previous effort to create an animal shelter? Who owns the property now the county originally gave to the previous effort? Were there funds created during that effort and what became of them? Can such an entity function free of local government investment and oversight? Hope Mr. VanZant has prepared his homework. Everyone agrees having such a shelter is a greatly needed venture but paying for it will be the biggest challenge. It would seem the citizens of the county should make such a decision.
