The roof and kennels of the proposed animal shelter were revisited again at last Tuesday night’s County Council meeting. Capital Projects Manager and Facilities Director Anne Laurent made her pitch to council in an effort to increase the budget for the animal shelter to $1,357,380, which would incorporate a metal roof, outside kennel drainage and would increase the number of kennels from 14 to 18.
Laurent said that she and her staff want to put solar panels on the animal shelter, as well as radiant heat. “You’re not replacing any unit by doing radiant heat,” she said. “It also adds comfort to the animals.”
During her presentation, she also addressed the coyote fence that is part of the plans for the new shelter. The fence was a main point of the last animal shelter discussion because councilors were concerned that it did not meet downtown standards. “The architect has dressed up the coyote fence and that constitutes the façade and how we meet the downtown standards,” Laurent said. She also mentioned that the flat roof has been converted and that is where the proposed solar panels would go.
