Council to award animal shelter renovation bid

The Greenville City Council intends to award a bid this week for renovations to the city’s animal shelter.

In a memo to the Council, Director of Public Works Massoud Ebrahim said the work is certainly needed as the facility has reached and far exceeded its life expectancy.

The Council is scheduled to award the almost $670,000  bid to Concord Commercial Services of Balch Springs during Tuesday’s regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building downtown.

Ebrahim said the cost of repairing the shelter’s administrative offices is not feasible and repairs would not condense the facilities down for a better staff flow. And then there is also the odor issue to address.

The project would involve tearing down the existing animal control office building, adding an office area to the existing dog kennel area, updating the heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) and renovating the dog kennel area and the isolation building.
