Bay County Officials Considering Expanding Animal Services And Adoption Center

Bay County voters could be asked to decide a millage request to expand the Animal Services and Adoption Center.

County Commissioner Michael Lutz will seek approval of a proposal at the March 10th full board session to hire  a consultant to determine exactly how much space is needed and the cost. Lutz hopes the information can be finalized by mid summer in time to get wording for a millage approved in August which would be followed by a November vote.

Lutz believes there is a need for more room to provide  greater separation for dogs and cats which would reduce their stress plus the potential for spreading diseases
