Garrard in Need of Animal Shelter Location

Nov 15, 2011

Garrard County officials are still looking for a place to build a new county animal shelter after the Fiscal Court rejected a plan Monday to move it to the fairgrounds. The Garrard County Fair Board preliminarily agreed to give the county land for the shelter at the back of the fairgrounds if the county would provide funds to pay off the fair board’s $183,600 loan with Whitaker Bank, then accept repayment from the fair board at 0 percent interest. Part of the money to pay off the bank would have to come from the county’s hospital debt-service fund.
