GRIFFITH | The town is seeking donations for a new animal shelter, the Town Council said Tuesday.
The new one will be built in the same area as the existing one for about $120,000, Police Chief Greg Mance said.
The town will earmark at least $80,000 toward the cost, said council vice president Rick Ryfa, R-3rd.
Mance said donations for the balance will be sought from local businesses and residents.
"The current animal shelter is in dire need of repair and upgrade," Ryfa said.
Mance said the town hopes to start construction of the post frame structure by early fall and finish by year's end.
