Council hears spiel for new animal shelter
Clinton has a problem with unwanted dogs and cats, and the City Council heard a proposal Tuesday evening for private help to do something about it.
Local insurance agent Cindy Box visited with the council about what she and others connected with Fetch Inc., a private 501(c)3 organization, are already doing and what they hope to do. City Manager Steve Hewitt filled the council in on some changes he and Police Chief David Crabtree are making and some things they would like to see.
Ms. Box proposed that if the city would commit $150,000 to $200,000 to a new shelter and share space in it with Fetch, the organization would try to raise an additional $150,000.
