The Taylor County Animal Shelter will soon get a new incinerator. And, according to Shelter Director John Harris, that will make the shelter's neighbors happy.
Magistrates agreed Tuesday night to purchase the incinerator for $18,186. Harris told the Court that a new one would cost $27,900, but the County can purchase one used for demonstrations for the $18,186 cost. He said it has been used for only two actual burns.
Half of the cost must be paid now, Harris said, and the rest will come from the shelter's 2010-2011 budget.
