Animal shelter still unfinished

September 26, 2005

Albany - The construction company building the new Dougherty County animal shelter is behind schedule. The county is fining L.R.A. construction $30 a day until the shelter is finished.

The construction of the new shelter on Oakridge Drive started about a year ago and was supposed to be complete in March. County Administrator Richard Crowdis says the county gave L.R.A a short extension until June. After that, the daily fines started.

"It's down to the final weeks," said Crowdis. "The contractor is going over it with our architect, dotting the "I's" and crossing the "T's" to make we have a good quality facility."

The county hopes to open the shelter within a month, but no date has been set in stone yet. The Dougherty County Humane Society will operate the shelter.
