Animal shelter project hits another snag

The long awaited Lamar County animal shelter project hit yet another snag Aug. 17, when the county commission unanimously rejected the lone bid from an architect to design it. Precision Planning entered a design bid of $82,340 and estimated the build out would cost more than $1 million. The shelter is the last remaining project on the list for current SPLOST funding in the amount of $250,000. ’We can’t put that much money into the design and get it built,’ chairman Charles Glass said. Citing the Boys & Girls Club project, commissioner Ryran Traylor said the commission would have to be more creative in finding ways to get the job done. Meanwhile, the shelter and its supporters, who have been raising funds for years, hang in limbo.
