Marshall approves aid for shelter

Local News

UPDATE: Marshall officials now say it’s up to citizens to help bring the funds as well. 

The question has not been what, hasn’t been where because we have a site dedicated, said Commissioner Larry HurtaIt also isn’t how… but how much?

The commission says they are pledging just under a million dollars in funds collected from 2016 and in the future. They say they only need around $250,000 in additional funds to make the dream come true.

I’m really happy, said child volunteer Alera Waite. I hope they build it big enough and long-term enough so it doesn’t end up like this one. 

ORIGINAL STORY: The Marshall animal shelter will finally receive some help. 

I’ve been there several times and I foster for them, Waite said. It’s just… nobody should walk in there… it’s just gross. Like they said… it’s not humane.

The council commissioners voted to give more than a half-a-million dollars towards the shelter which is more than 50 years old. Plenty of residents voiced to help sway their opinion, which worked out in their favor.
