Larger kennels at dog shelter, road projects OK’d by commissioners

Road and bridge projects and solutions to deal with the large population of dogs at the county dog ​​shelter were the main items of business during the Richland County Commissioners meeting on Thursday.

Commissioners authorized county Engineer Adam Gove to enter into contracts with the Ohio Department of Transportation for funding for bridge replacement projects on Champion and Coursen Roads and a pavement widening project on Lexington-Springmill Road.

They also authorized spending up to $49,999 in county capital reinvestment funds for new cages for large dogs and agreed to reduce some fees to encourage the adoption of the large number of dogs being held at the shelter.

The board accepted a recommendation from Dog Warden Missy Houghton to cut impose fees in half and reduce adoption fees for the month of August.
