Larger Kennels at a Dog Shelter, Road Projects Approved by Commissioners

Road and bridge projects and solutions to address the large dog population at the county’s dog shelter were top business topics during the Richland County commissioners’ meeting on Thursday.

The commissioners authorized County Engineer Adam Gove to enter into contracts with the Ohio Department of Transportation to fund 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 rollover funds for new large dog crates and agreed to reduce some fees to encourage adoption of the shelter’s large number of dogs.

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