PERRY COUNTY — Commissioners reviewed several items of business at their regular meeting, April 18.

The county animal shelter repairs are progressing. The building still needs roof repairs, guttering, power washing, painting and some wiring. They are looking into a security system for the building to keep shelter employees safe. Commissioner Rebecca Thorn also said the security system will help prevent people from dropping off animals while the shelter isn’t open. In a separate interview, County Auditor Kris Hammack emphasized the animal shelter is not open, currently. They are in the process of getting the building up to code with a tentative opening date of June 1. The animal shelter is now only taking pick ups by law enforcement, Hammack said.
