Dickinson to get new animal shelterThe city of Dickinson is set to get a new animal — but its price tag is still up in the air.
DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — The city of Dickinson is set to get a new animal — but its price tag is still up in the air.
The Dickinson Press reports that city commissioners rebuffed early this week the $1.2 million price for the proposed facility presented by architect Jan Prchal of Hulsing and Associates. So Prchal cut the proposed 6,000-square-foot building in half and redesigned it. With the redesign, the shelter will now have room for 14 dog kennels, down from the original 20. Many other features were also eliminated and the location of the shelter was changed.
The current shelter in Dickinson has room for five dogs.
The new price tag for the redesigned shelter was not immediately available. The city plans to use a combination of public and private funds to pay for the facility.
