Animal control might expand in current locationPublished 12:43pm Wednesday, January 23, 2013
ST. JOSEPH — Berrien County has been discussing improvements to its animal control facility for 15 years.
Thursday, when Manager Valarie Grimes met with the Board of Commissioners Administration Committee, discussion turned to expanding its existing Berrien Center location.
“The room is there,” she said. “Truth be known, the people who use our shelter are in the south. Up here (in St. Joseph), they have Animal Aid and the Humane Society.”
The committee of Mac Elliott, Marletta Seats, Jim Curran and Cathy Thieneman voted to recommend a request for proposals.
