Follow Our Paws/New Animal Shelter
Wilson County Commissioners have been on track to build a brand new animal shelter to replace our current aging one. We will continue to post exciting updates on this as we move forward:
Crews started work at the site this month as they prepare the infrastructure and foundation.
Our progress continues. Contracts are in place and we are preparing for construction to begin during the month of June.
At the April 6, 2020 county commissioners meeting, commissioners unanimously approved a contract bid for R&L Builders & Sons. This was the lowest bid at a total cost of $1,274,550. We hope to see this project start within the next 30 days. Stay tuned here for more updates.
The bidding process and advertising has started. After the formal bids are received and opened commissioners will consider for approval at the April commissioners meeting.
Final adjustments to the Animal Shelter based on state recommendations are being considered before the bidding process starts.
