Jones County’s Animal Control Committee met last week to discuss plans for a new building for the county’s animal shelter.

Animal Control Director Jennifer Giddens handed out building plans to the committee members at the March 3 meeting and introduced Keith Garrison of Garrison Construction Company.

Garrison explained that the plans committee members were looking at were for a $290,000 turnkey project for a new animal control facility. The building would be 5,000 square feet.

The proposed site for the building is on property the county already owns out Highway 11, near the old Bradley-Wayside School building. That tract of land contains 10.28 acres and the animal control building is projected to be placed on the Gray side of the convenience center.

The new building would double the square footage for the county’s animal shelter. The current facility is 2,400 square feet.

County Administrator and committee member Mike Underwood reminded the attendees that the project would have to go out for bid.
